One person died, a two-year old who was pronounced deceased on the scene. The WRAL story notes that three others (adults) were injured, and transported to WakeMed with non-life-threatening injuries. One was transferred to UNC Hospitals in Chapel Hill. The fire investigation took several hours. The cause was determined as accidental, caused by a faulty electrical cord in the living room. Readers are welcome to add incident details.
