RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) — A dozen residents have been evicted after four homes in North Raleigh were damaged by fire Sunday night, officials said.

According to Brian Sherrill, a Raleigh Fire Chief, the fire was reported just after 7:10 p.m. at 8604 Olde Station Dr., just off Strickland Road near Six Forks Road.

The fire spread to another apartment, leaving two units badly damaged, he said.

A resident was able to exit the burning apartment but was injured and taken to a hospital for treatment, Sherrill said.
