At about a quarter past eleven in the evening on Saturday night 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 Ladder 1, Wake Forest Battalion 1.
When units arrived the front of the house was engulfed in fire which allegedly began in the garage. Witnesses said the family made it out of the house but sadly there may have been two family pets which did not survive the fire.
The fire was quickly brought under control but there was extensive damage to the house.
