The occupants were confirmed to be safely outside as crews began an attack on the fire. Although a quick knock down on the bulk of the fire was achieved, the house sustained significant smoke and heat damage.

Both Concord and Landis fire departments assisted at the fire while Cabarrus County EMS assisted on scene with medical monitoring of fire personnel. No injuries were reported.
