CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
A Charlotte man's home went up in flames Thursday afternoon, but luckily no one was seriously injured.
Chopper 9 Skyzoom showed the smoke billowing into the air. A neighbor called 911 when they noticed the house on fire.
Crews with the Charlotte Fire Department fought the blaze from the roof.
The homeowner said he was down the street visiting a friend when someone yelled his house was on fire.
He'll now be staying with family and friends while investigators try and figure out exactly how the fire started.
"It's an older house and our guys are very good about being aware of the construction they go into and the types of roofs they get onto," said Charlotte Battalion Chief Peter Skeris.
CFD investigators are looking at an accidental cause, but they're still making their final determination. The home suffered about $30,000 in damages.
