Today, at 4:12pm our Station 4 was alerted to a brush fire In the 11835 Block of Patterson Rd (off Hambright Rd) in the construction area. An alert Huntersville Police Department Officer discovered the brush fire while on patrol. Our Engine 4 checked on scene and quickly asked for assistance from our Engine 1 and Brush 4. The fire was eventually controlled within 30 minutes. We are very appreciative of the alert HPD Officer who discovered it and reported it.

Of note…the Mecklenburg County region has responded to quite a few outside fires today. As the weather gets better, folks clean up yard debris. We remind you that open burning of that debris is not legal…

Thanks to HPD for the photos of our teams doing work.
