STATIONS 1 AND 2 RESPOND TO A STRUCTURE FIRE IN STEPHENS GROVE

Monday, February 2, 2015  At 2:15am Stations 1 and 2 were dispatched to a structure fire at 7929 Horseshoe Creek Drive (in the Stephens Grove neighborhood). As units responded, multiple 911 callers were reporting fire on the second floor of the home and the call was upgraded to a working house fire. Engine 2 arrived shortly thereafter to find heavy fire showing from a room over the garage. The 5 residents were found outside the home, reporting that one pet (a cat) missing. While Engine 2’s crew advanced an attack line into the house, additional arriving personnel along with 2 Huntersville Police Officers advanced 5” LHD approximately 300’ and secured a water supply. Ladder 2 arrived shortly thereafter and placed the aerial outside the window of the fire room. Crews inside made the stairs finding heavy fire in the room of origin, beginning to enter the hallway. Crews entered the room and quickly knocked the fire down as Engine 1 and Heavy Rescue 1 arrived on scene.  Engine 1 and Rescue 1 conducted a primary search of the residence, finding the cat in the master bedroom under a bed. The search team quickly removed the cat and attempted resuscitation in the yard with the assistance of MEDIC. Unfortunately the cat could not be resuscitated. Fortunately the fire was kept to the room of origin, which the residents reported was the ‘Media Room. The Mecklenburg County Fire Marshals Office is investigating the cause of the fire.

Huntersville crews remained on scene for some time as they conducted overhaul operations and assisted the Fire Marshal with investigation. All Huntersville units were clear of the scene by 6:10am.

Numerous 911 callers were reporting a trailer home on fire. Engines 1, 22 and Long Creek Fire quickly checked in route. Off Duty Captain R Wilson arrived on scene first at 9320 Hambright Road to find a working fire, upgraded the assignment and assumed command. Huntersville Engine 1 arrived next and advanced an 1 ¾” attack line to the structure. Huntersville Engine 22 arrived, provided water to Engine 1 and advanced a second line off Engine 1 to the structure. Long Creek Fire arrived and conducted a primary of the structure. Very quick work by the responding crews to control the fire - everything worked out well and 50% of the home was saved.


The proximity of the home resulted in the closing of Hambright Road for some time. North Mecklenburg Rescue and MEDIC responded to the scene and provided medical standby; luckily no injuries were reported. It appears the fire began in the kitchen of the structure and was reported quickly by passersby. The Mecklenburg County Fire Marshals Office is investigating the cause.

We recognized our 2014 top off-duty call runners (volunteer off-duty calls) Mark Auten 208 calls, Bill Suthard 178 calls and Brent Irvin 155 calls. We also named our 2014 Firefighter of the year – Chad Dunn and 2014 Fire Officer of the year – John Welty. 

This year we also recognized one of our firefighter wives for her dedication and volunteerism over the last few years. Leanne Costello has been a consistent, dedicated support for our many community events, blood drives and fundraisers. She, like many of our FF wives, is the solid rock behind the scenes that support our firefighters and our Department every day. 

We would like to also thank several sponsors who provide continued support for our department everyday: Next Level Readiness of Huntersville, Municipal Emergency Services (MES), Outback Steakhouse, Longhorn Steakhouse as well as the NorthStone Country Club which always eagerly hosts us each year and provides unbelievable service, food and attention.
