VIDEO: A firefighter had to be taken to the hospital Thursday morning after massive flames broke out at a home in northeast Mecklenburg County. A viewer sent Channel 9 cellphone video of the house fire on Sandringham Place, between North Tryon Street and Interstate 85. The flames broke out around 2 a.m. Channel 9 crews could see dozens of firefighters getting the fire under control, but the home was gutted. Officials said one firefighter was hurt but described the injuries as minor. There is no word yet on what may have started the fire. Because the home was so damaged, firefighters said the search of the entire structure has been delayed.
