Today, our Tanker 3 and Car 2 (HFD Duty Chief) responded to I77 Northbound near Sunset Road to assist the Charlotte Fire Department, Charlotte NC with a tractor trailer fire (full of lawn mowers). Due to the volume of fire and the lack of fire hydrants on the interstate, our Tanker 3 was added to the call. Tanker 3 and it’s drop tank provided some much needed, additional water for the incident. We are so fortunate to have two (not just one tanker) here in Town for incidents like this. Just another tool in our fire suppression tool box.
Other Mutual Aid Companies on the box included: Long Creek Fire Department and Cook’s Community VFD. The interstate (northbound I77 remained closed for an extended period of time following this incident.#MutualAid #CLTTraffic
