Several Families Lose Everything In Lake Norman Condo Fire

CORNELIUS, N.C. — Crews battled a large fire at condos on Lake Norman early Monday morning. In the video above, take a look at the Admirals Quarters on Nautical Drive just west of Catawba Avenue near Westmoreland Road.

Fire investigators say the blaze started on the 3rd floor deck.  Several apartments were heavily damaged by fire and water.  The fire then spread into the attic space and consumed the upper structure and roof.

We spoke to one neighbor who says she watched a condo basically burn to ashes, the fire also spreading to her porch. She and her husband were able to quickly get dressed, grab the cat, and get out.

No injuries were reported. It’s unclear how the fire started. We’ll keep you updated as soon as we get more information.
