Smoke alarm alerts family to fire

KANNAPOLIS – At 6:48 p.m. Thursday, Kannapolis firefighters responded to a two-alarm fire at 134 Springway Drive off South Main Street. Units arrived on scene within five minutes to find heavy fire and smoke coming from the attic and the rear of the two-story brick home.
The family members heard the smoke alarm and got out without injury but fire crews searched the structure for the family cat; which possibly escaped the home on its own.
The fire conditions and heavy smoke made it necessary to call for additional resources to the scene, making this a two-alarm fire.
Crews from Concord Fire & Life Safety, Enochville Volunteer Fire Department, Landis Fire Department and Odell Volunteer Fire Department responded to the scene to assist with searching for hot spots and salvage operations, which protect the valuables from further damage. Cabarrus County EMS assisted on scene with medical monitoring of fire personnel. No injuries were reported.
Coldwater Volunteer Fire Department, Landis Fire Department and Odell Volunteer Fire Department provided district coverage, as well.
The home suffered significant damage to the attic and rear of the structure, however, American Red Cross assistance was not needed.
At this time, the cause is still under investigation.
