Cornelius-Lemley Fire Rescue

Today we keep Ed and Michael Kennedy in our hearts and in our thoughts. May people never forget the sacrifice they made and all that they gave up helping others. And to honor them, today I’m starting a “$5 for 5 years” campaign and I think that a $500 goal is fitting. Money raised through this fundraiser will be split with the Last Call Foundation in Memory of Fallen Firefighter Michael Kennedy to help support the amazing work that Kathy Crosby-Bell has been doing to protect fire fighters and to prevent another tragedy like the Back Bay Fire of 3/26/14.

Thank you for helping us keep their memories alive and allowing us to continue their legacies of helping others.

At 04:20 Cornelius and Huntersville firefighters were dispatched to a structure fire in the Admirals Quarters Condominium Complex. Upon arrival Cornelius Engine 4 found a three story condo with heavy fire visible from the 3rd floor and roof. The call was upgraded to a Working Fire and additional units were requested from Davidson Stations 1 & 2 and Huntersville Station 1. Due to the close proximity to Lake Norman Denver Fire Boat 13 was requested.

Cornelius Engine 4 personnel were able to secure their own water supply and begin fire suppression. Crews advanced a 2” attack line to the third floor and began hitting the fire. Huntersville Engine 2 began a primary search. Cornelius Engine 6 arrived and assisted with suppression, H&L44 arrived and set up the aerial for master stream operations. Davidson Engine 3 arrived and established a water supply to H&L44.

Due to the size of the structure and the amount of fire upon arrival a box alarm was also requested from Charlotte Fire Department.

All in all there were 18 condos in the building and all of them suffered fire and or water damage. All primary searches proved to be negative. There were two aerial master streams used and two large diameter handlines used to control the fire.

Units Responding:
Cornelius – E4, E6, H&L44, R4
Huntersville – E2, L1
Davidson – E2, E3
Charlotte – E28, L28, Batt 6, Car 8
Denver – FireBoat 13
Medic – 2ALS Units, EMS Supervisor
Meck Co FMO 1100, 1104

Thank you all for all you do! Ashley

Some of thoses structures have been there a long time now...I'm sure the insides have been updated but roofs are old and would certainly go up in flames very quick. I grew up in the area in the 70s and 80s when they were built. Hope no one got hurt.

Aw man. Hope all residents got out safely

Some friends lived there, thank you for saving their snakes too.

Cornelius and Davidson Fire Departments responded to reports of an explosion in the Bailey Rd / River Run area this evening. The cause was found to be a construction company blasting rock in the Bailey’s Glen subdivision. The Mecklenburg County Fire Marshals Office is investigating to ensure all proper permits were in place and procedures were followed. There was no damage to life or property. ... See MoreSee Less

Wow - I felt the shake and heard the boom at my house in Concord and thought I was going crazy!

Courtesy calls to FDs and PDs should still be made

More houses, ugh. Just what our little roads need. It’s all over the news about the intensity of the blast.

Do they not do the typical three horn blasts before they detonate?? And they should keep local FD and PD up to date when they blast.

My wife heard it in Mooresville just north of Mt Mourne.

I was about a mile away it was loud, window pane rattling.

Bill Shapcott. Kurt Floto. This is what happened

Would have been nice to know prior before my whole house shook.

That was very intense explosion 💥
