Pyracantha root development question

Pyracantha root development question

I have a mature successfull Pyracantha growing against a large concrete wall of a neighbours extension that was planted around 12 years ago. I noticed recently that the trunk of the shrub has reached around 2 inches diameter. The trunk is about 6 inches from the wall and I am concerned about root damage to the foundations of the wall or problems due to root drainage of the undersoil. Can anyone tell me if this shrub has strong roots that could cause damage to foundations.
Thanks
