At about a quarter past eleven in the evening on Saturday night, April 12th, Wake Forest Fire Department and Rolesville Fire Department were called to 417 Cottesbrook Drive in Wake Forest. Units dispatched included Rolesville Pumper 153, Roseville Engine 151, Rolesville Rescue 15, Wake Forest Engine 1, Wake Forest Engine 3, Wake Forest Engine 5, Wake Forest Ladder 1, Wake Forest Battalion 1.
When units arrived the front of the house was engulfed in fire. The fire began in the garage. Witnesses said the family made it out of the house but sadly a family dog did not survive the fire.
The fire was quickly brought under control and while there was extensive damage to the front of the house, most of the families valuable possessions were saved.
