Just after midnight, Stations 1, 2 were dispatched to a Fire Alarm at the Quality Inn Huntersville North Carolina, 16825 Caldwell Creek Dr. Our Engine 2 arrived on scene first, reporting fire showing from the 2nd floor of the hotel - upgrading the call to a working fire adding Cornelius, our Ladder 2, North Meck Rescue and Medic. While our Engine 1 & 2 extinguished the fire, Cornelius conducted primary and secondary searches on the hotel. The fire was kept to the... room of origin, however a total of 6 rooms were affected by smoke and water damage. All guests were accounted for, with no injuries and some guests were relocated to other areas of the hotel for the night. All fire crews were clear of the scene by 2am. Demonstrates the importance of being prepared for anything - crews responded to a fire alarm and arrived on scene to find a working fire - without ANY 911 calls reporting the fire, only the dispatched fire alarm.
