House damaged after electrical fire

RALEIGH Fire crews were called to a two-story duplex in the 2300 block of Persimmon Ridge Drive around noon Sunday.

The fire caused significant damage to one of the units and both of the adjacent units. It took firefighters about a half an hour to get the fire under control.

Investigators said they believed the fire was caused by an electrical malfunction in the garage. Authorities said it was most likely due to an overloaded circuit and was considered an accidental fire.

No one was injured from the fire. At least four people have been displaced because of the blaze.
