Doorbell video captures fire at North Carolina vacation home


COROLLA, N.C. (WAVY) — Dramatic video from a doorbell camera shows a vacation home in Corolla going up in flames early Tuesday morning.

Officials with Corolla Fire And Rescue said crews were called to Coral Lane just before 2:45 a.m. The house was fully engulfed in flames by the time firefighters arrived.

A video shows the flames from a nearby house.

Heavy rain Tuesday morning helped firefighters get the blaze under control within an hour, officials said.

The house was unoccupied since it was a vacation home, and the owner hasn’t been there since October.

Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire, but officials noted it could have been caused by a lightning strike from the Tuesday morning weather conditions.
