Video: Doorbell cam 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 told 10 On Your Side crews were called to Coral Lane just before 2:45 a.m. The house was fully engulfed in flames by the time firefighters arrived.

Video showing the flames was sent to 10 On Your Side 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 Tuesday morning’s conditions.
