Heavy rains create flash flooding across Triangle

Severe weather wreaked havoc around the Triangle Thursday. It's also being blamed for a house fire in North Raleigh.

In downtown Raleigh, a car was caught in rising flood waters at a construction site off of Wilmington Street near the Halifax Mall. Its driver was nowhere to be found.

Across town, a creek overflowed in front of the Milner Inn on Capital Boulevard.

Heavy rain also flooded the intersection of Atlantic Avenue and Harrod Street.

Meanwhile, sheriff's deputies said lightning apparently started a fire on Kirkby Lane, which is just off Creedmoor Road.

So far, there haven't been any reports of injuries associated with the severe weather.
