No injuries in Hickory Grove-area fire

No injuries were reported Monday morning when fire damaged a house in northeast Charlotte’s Hickory Grove community.

The fire was reported about 4:45 a.m. at a residence in the 6200 block of East W.T. Harris Boulevard, near Grove Park Boulevard. That is between Hickory Grove and Robinson Church roads.

Charlotte fire Capt. Rob Brisley said neighbors spotted the blaze and called 911. Flames and smoke were reported from the single-story brick ranch, but a crew of 27 Charlotte firefighters needed a little more than 10 minutes to put down the fire, according to Charlotte fire Capt. Rob Brisley.

Brisley said damage was less than $1,000 and was confined to the exterior of the building. The home’s occupants were displaced initially, but Brisley said they will be able to return to the house as soon as they want.

Investigators are working to determine a cause of the fire.
