ROSENTHAL Street closed between the Cobby Street and Jackson Street intersections, Campbell, while firefighters worked to extinguish a house fire that started Tuesday afternoon (June 15). 

The fire was caused by a solar battery electrical fire. There was no damage to the home.

Crews remained on scene overnight and conducted atmospheric monitoring.
