Just after midnight, Stations 1, 2 were dispatched to a Fire Alarm at the Quality Inn Huntersville North Carolina, 16825 Caldwell Creek Dr. Our Engine 2 arrived on scene first, reporting fire showing from the 2nd floor of the hotel - upgrading the call to a working fire adding Cornelius, our Ladder 2, North Meck Rescue and Medic. While our Engine 1 & 2 extinguished the fire, Cornelius conducted primary and secondary searches on the hotel. The fire was kept to the... room of origin, however a total of 6 rooms were affected by smoke and water damage. All guests were accounted for, with no injuries and some guests were relocated to other areas of the hotel for the night. All fire crews were clear of the scene by 2am. Demonstrates the importance of being prepared for anything - crews responded to a fire alarm and arrived on scene to find a working fire - without ANY 911 calls reporting the fire, only the dispatched fire alarm. #OneTownOneTeam #BlackOverRedSee below for more pictures.

It's that time of year! Over the next week local Boy Scouts will be in Huntersville neighborhoods passing out 'Scouting For Food' bags for their annual food drive which benefits Loaves and Fishes Charlotte Mecklenburg. Scouts will place the brown paper bags in your paper box or on your front door and they will return to collect the bags and any non-perishable food donations on the morning of Saturday February 4th. Every little bit counts and the Scouts will eagerly collect ...it all. Many of our members were once Boy Scouts themselves and we even have a few Eagle Scouts within our ranks - so we applaud and support these fine young men. Please consider emptying those pantries and help provide groceries to those neighbors in need!
