NC Hwy 73 was
CLOSED for hours this evening near the McGuire Nuclear Power Plant while Police
investigated a serious Motor Vehicle Accident involving a fatality. A total of
5 patients, 4 of which were transported to CMC-Main. All were priority
patients, one of which passed away on scene. Both East & West bound lanes
were CLOSED for hours while CMPD investigated. The
call came in around 7:26pm and Engine 2 arrived on scene first to find a near
head-on collision involving a Toyota Scion and a Pick up truck with heavy
damage to the vehicles. Engine 2 immediately split its crew with one team removing
the driver's door of the car using their edraulic tools; finding the driver
unresponsive. The second crew removed the front seat passenger, who was also
unresponsive but also pulseless and immediately initiated CPR on her.
Additional crews began to arrive on scene and removed a 16 month old child from
a car seat in the rear of the car, while the initial crew quickly packaged the
driver of the car for rapid transport by MEDIC to CMC-Main in Uptown. A second
MEDIC crew arrived on scene, terminated CPR and pronounced the passenger of the
car deceased on scene. Crews then shifted their focus to the pick-up truck and
began extricating and packaging those occupants (two) for transport to CMC
Main. A third ambulance arrived on scene, this one from Lincoln County, and
transported both occupants from the truck to CMC-Main. 2 firefighters rode into
the hospital, one with the child and one with the driver of the car and a
Huntersville Police Officer drove the Lincoln County Ambulance in, while their
crew attended to the two truck occupants. The
car's driver remains in critical condition, the toddler suffered cuts and bruises and
was released to relatives.
Units on scene:
Huntersville Engines 1, 2, Ladder 2 and Heavy Rescue 1; Cornelius Engine 3;
MEDIC; Lincoln County EMS; Huntersville Police Department and the Charlotte
Mecklenburg Police Department.

Engine 1 responded to a Vehicle Fire at the Shell Fast Track, 502 Gilead Rd and
arrived quickly to find a truck hauling hay on fire with heavy fire showing on
arrival. Crews quickly stretched a bumper line to the fire as Tanker 3 was
added to the call. Crews were able to extinguish the stubborn fire in about an
hour. Unfortunately Gilead Rd was temporarily closed during the incident. Coincidentally
this was the first run for the new Tanker (Tanker 3).Units

At around 1:45am Stations 1, 2 and Cornelius Fire Station 2 responded
to a working apartment fire in the 8500 Block of Streamview Dr, off Birkdale
Commons Parkway. 911 callers were reporting 2 balconies and the roof on fire at
the Fairways at Birkdale Apartments. E2 arrived on scene first to find 2 apartment
balconies with heavy fire and fire in the attic beginning to show through the
roof. As additional crews arrived, E2 knocked the fire on the balcony while
another crew went to the 3rd floor and began hitting the fire in the attic.
Residents were located on the 2nd & 3rd floors and firefighters helped them
escape via the stairwell. The fire was controlled in less than 45 mins; crews
remained on scene for hours. Nine Apartments received damage and 20 residents
were displaced, the Red Cross of the Carolinas assisted the displaced residents
on scene. The Mecklenburg County Fire Marshals Office is investigating the cause,
it appears the fire started on a 1st floor balcony and quickly spread to the
2nd floor, making its way into the attic.
Units on scene: Huntersville Engines
2, 11, Ladders 1, 2 and Heavy Rescue 1; Cornelius Engine 4; MEDIC and
