CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Dozens of firefighters were needed to put out a large fire at a southeast Charlotte home, the Charlotte Fire Department says.

The homeowner suffered minor injuries but wasn’t transported to the hospital.

Investigators deemed that the fire was accidental due to cutting and grinding too close to stored fireworks. The estimated damage is approximately $142,000.

Two additional homes suffered heat damage from the fire but are okay and homeowners can return.
