Today around 4 pm, Station 1 responded to reports of an Outside Fire along the I485 Outer Loop near Old Statesville Rd. Our Engine 1 arrived on scene to find a fast moving outside fire advancing up hill and behind the Northlake Auto Mall. Charlotte Fire was already on scene fighting the same fire along the right side of the roadway (I485 Outer) so our E1 set up Operations at the top of the hill. Charlotte Tanker 28 and our Tanker 1 were added to the call. Crews were able to get ahead of the advancing fire, trapping it between Charlotte & Huntersville and eventually stopping it completely. Apparatus on scene: Our Engine 1, Tanker 1 & Brush 1, Charlotte Fire Engine 31, Tanker 28 and Brush 31.Click below for more pictures.

Station 1 & North Mecklenburg Rescue worked an MVA this morning on the I77SB ramp to the I485 Outer Loop involving a car versus a pole with heavy damage. The car departed the roadway & struck an NCDOT traffic camera pole. The car actually wrapped itself around the pole. Amazingly the single occupant self extricated & was awaiting the arrival of fire and rescue crews. Heavy fog out there this morning and we urge everyone to slow down.Click below for more pictures.
