At 2:42am this morning, our Stations 1, 2 and Long Creek Fire Department were dispatched to a possible house fire in the 5940 Block of Neck Road. Car 2 arrived on scene first and declared a working fire with heavy smoke showing from the attic. Engine 2 arrived shortly thereafter and stretched an attack line into the home, while Long Creek Engine 4 laid a supply line. The fire was quickly controlled by Engine 2’s crew. The fire originated in the wall behind a wood stove. Fire was caused by cracks in the masonry of the chimney. Fortunately the fire was quickly identified and reported by the residents and then quickly extinguished by our arriving companies. Huntersville crews operated on scene just under 2 hours.
