Two fires reported within two minutes of each other early Sunday damaged two houses in Southern Shores.

The first fire in the 100 block of High Dune Loop apparently started with a barbecue grill next to the house and caused considerable damage, according to Sgt. Eric Brinkley with the Southern Shores Police Department.

It was reported at 2:15 a.m.

Two minutes later, fire crews were sent to a fire in the 300 block of Duck Road.

An electrical problem apparently touched off a fire in a detached garage that spread to the nearby house, causing major damage, Brinkley reported.

All of the occupants in both houses got out without injuries.

Duck Police Department, Duck Fire Department, Kitty Hawk Fire Department, Kill Devil Hills Fire Department, Colington Fire Department, Nags Head Fire Department, Roanoke Island Fire, NC Forestry, Corolla Fire Department and Lower Currituck Fire Departments also responded.
