No injuries were reported in a house fire Thursday morning near Bessemer City, authorities say.

The blaze came one day after crews in three counties battled five different house fires in the Charlotte area.

Thursday morning’s blaze was reported about 5:45 a.m. in the 300 block of East Georgia Avenue, authorities say. Crews from the Bessemer City, Tryonota and Crowder’s Mountain fire departments responded.

Crews found smoke and flames coming from the front window of the single-story house. It took the 20 firefighters about 20 minutes to put out the blaze.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
