05/28/13 119 W - + 11 - 4 Arrival Video of Belmont House Fire

Here's a short video that's been making the rounds, such as FireNews.net and Statter911. Belmont Fire Department arriving at a well-involved (or is that fully-involved) house fire on Forney Avenue on Sunday morning. One fatality, a 62-year-old woman found in the front bedroom. (Does the fatality, in turn, warrant mention in this posting's headline? Should this posting be titled "... Fatal Belmont House Fire?" Does it add a sympathetic or gratuitous twist? You tell me.) Can't find much info on BFD. They have two stations, one of which is co-located with South Point FD. The municipality has 10.1 square miles, shaped roughly like a diamond. Population 10,076 in 2010. Town was incorporated in 1895.

This fire is actually in Community FD area. Community, Mt. Holly, Belmont, and East Gaston responded. That is Mt. Holly E 34 arriving first in the video followed by Rescue 32 from Community.
