GREENVILLE, N.C. -- Greenville fire crews are investigating a house fire that broke out early Friday morning.
Battalion Chief Shannon Terry said the house is over 9,000 square feet, which is as big as city block.
The fire broke out around 2:30 a.m.
Officials say fighting the fire was like fighting an apartment fire, with more than 35 members on the scene and other departments from the county manning the Greenville fire stations.
The three people inside got out uninjured. Investigators believe the fire started in the garage area.
Tax records say the home is owned by Donald and Carolyn Stanley. Those records show the home is 9,547 square feet and was built in 1971.
It has a tax value of just under $375,000.
The exact cause of the fire is still under investigation.
