More than 30 firefighters responded to a call at 8250 Merriweather Circle in northeast Raleigh early Monday morning.

When firefighters arrived around 2:45 a.m., they saw flames coming from a bedroom window of the two-story townhouse.

They brought the fire under control in less than 30 minutes, a report said. Fire department investigators said the residence sustained about 20 percent damage.

One person suffered non-life threatening burns and was taken to the hospital, the report said. The man’s name was not released.
