Station 2 worked a large brush fire behind Hopewell High School near the Tanners Creek neighborhood (Coastal Way). 911 callers were reporting heavy smoke from the woods along Coastal Way. Crews arrived to find a large fire, in the woods just off a foot path from Coastal Way and worked quickly to stop the almost 2 acre fire using rakes and water from our off-road brush truck (Brush 22).The fire is believed to have started on Friday from a make-shift camp fire that was not extinguished. Huntersville Police are investigating the incident as possibly related to an incident involving students from Hopewell HS on Friday in Tanners Creek.

This morning, Station 1 ran an MVA on the Interstate (I77 near Exit 23) in the Toll construction zone. The accident involved a Tanker Truck and an Armored Truck. The Tanker truck drove through the concrete barriers and ruptured the Armored truck's saddle tanks. Subsequently we had to close I77 and request Charlotte Fire Hazmat to the scene to pump off the remaining fuel in the saddle tanks. The closing of I77 caused heavy delays and traffic back ups on all surrounding surface streets as well. Additionally two more accidents occurred on those relief streets (Old Statesville Rd and Statesville Rd). The Interstate was closed for over 2.5 hours. No serious injuries resulted from the accident. Clicked below for more pictures from the incident.
