Today we were honored to host the 2021 membership meeting for the FDNY Carolinas Retirees Association. After the meeting FF Overcash was presented with a plaque thanking him for his work on the 9/11 monument project. The CLFD was also given a plaque for the monument project (DC Bridges pictured accepting). We enjoyed having this group at the firehouse. The stories and fellowship were incredible!Image attachmentImage attachment

Robert Cannon , we should get Richard plugged in with these guys.

Thank you brothers for your hospitality, just standing in your kitchen brought a lot of us way back. The firehouse kitchen, where we solved the problems of the world 🙂

On Monday, June 7th a thunderstorm rolled through Cornelius. In a span of 42 minutes five houses were struck by lightning resulting in two working house fires roughly one mile apart. 

Cornelius 9 & Hook & Ladder 44 arrived on Havenview Dr to find a working basement fire. Engine 2, Engine 4 and Huntersville Engine 2 also responded. Two lines were placed in service and searches proved negative. That fire was placed under control in approximately twenty minutes. 

As Command declared the working fire on Havenview Cornelius was dispatched to a second fire on Colony Point. Davidson units enroute to Havenview were diverted and Huntersville Station 1 & Mt. Mourne were requested to respond.  Huntersville Deputy Chief 902 arrived and confirmed a working fire in the crawl space of the home. Huntersville E33, Davidson Engines 1 & 2, Mount Mourne Engine 1 and Cornelius Truck 4 handled this fire. 

We are extremely grateful for the assistance we received Monday from our mutual aid partners. The North End is strong.Image attachment

Thanks for ALL you do for this community!

Good job!

Proud of CLFD! Thank you!!

Very proud of them also But if I may ask what's going on with the exit 28 bridge and all the backups. Saw a fire truck and later an ambulance trying to get through so much delay. What is the answer? Definitely can't be letting more construction bringing in more traffic. Any answers?

The North End is strong! From Huntersville to Mt Mourne - we have great coverage (Huntersville, Cornelius, Davidson & Mt Mourne) #NorthEnd

Great job guys

You guys are amazing!

Thank u all . good job . be safe.

We’re so grateful for the response that limited the fire to our crawl space.

FB4 & E4 working with TowBoatUS Lake Norman and Workhorse Marine LLC today. Staff at Kings Point noted a gasoline odor and upon further investigation found gas in the bilge of a boat.

Today we had a little visitor while testing hydrants. We will be testing our fire hydrants over the next two months. Charlotte Water did not allow testing in 2020 due to staffing shortages caused by COVID. Due to the fact that the hydrants were not flushed last year it may cause the water in your home or business to become murky. Simply open your faucets, let the water flow and it will clear up. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience.

Way to go, Nick🍾🎓🎉

Today we conducted a live fire training exercise in the 13400 Block of Sam Furr Road (the future home of a new Publix store). We were able to train in a donated house (a large house) and we spent the morning practicing extinguishment techniques under live fire conditions. Also in attendance was a crew from Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue. Also in attendance, 3 Huntersville, North Carolina - Town Government Commissioners (Melinda Bales, Lance Munger and Brian Hines). Commissioners Munger & Hines actually suited up & received a close up view of how we trained. It was a very good day. We have 3 more planned burns in the next week or so, in order to clear a total of 4 homes for the new construction. We appreciate the opportunity to train. #TrainingFire #OneTownOneTeam #TrainAsWeFight ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks for all that you do for the community! It is greatly appreciated!

Is this the house on the right that sits way off the road if you’re headed towards concord, right before the stoplight? The driveway is close to the pages pond entrance.

Could see the smoke from I-85. Hope everyone came out safe.

I could have used a donated house as a cat sanctuary...

what a shame...always loved that house

What a dream house to set on fire- whatever the reason! Humans.... smdh.

That sure is a nice house to destroyed. It's a shame

This was my aunts house. Sad to see it gone

Looked like a really nice place! I needed that garage in my life 😭😭

Jacob Hovis, I think I found our smoke plume we saw on the lake yesterday!

Grateful for all you do!

Nice home to set on fire.

**Working Fire** This evening CLFD operated at a fire in a single family home on Pine Ridge Drive. First arriving H&L 44 found smoke showing, declared working fire, and began a search. E6 arrived and stretched initial attack line and confined fire to one room. Companies on the assignment: E6, H&L 44, T4, R4 and Davidson E1 as well as numerous volunteers. Solid work by all members.Image attachment

On the evening of May 7th Cornelius Engine 6 responded to Huntersville to assist with a working house fire. The majority of the fire damage was in the garage and attic as well as a boat in the driveway. The cause is still under investigation.Image attachment

Yesterday Stations 1, 3, 4 & Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue responded to a working fire in Town. Just after 5pm calls began coming in for a house fire in the 12600 Block of Cumberland Crest Drive. Engine 1 arrived on scene with heavy fire from the garage as well as a boat fully involved in the driveway. 

Crews worked quickly to extinguish the fire. Fire was held to the garage and did not translate into the home. Home suffered some water and smoke damage but the bulk of the fire damage was in the garage, attic space above and the boat was a total loss. The Fire Marshal is investigating fire cause and origin. Special thanks to Huntersville Police Department & MEDIC for also responding. #WorkingFire #HuntersvilleFD
