06/26/15 679 W, 1 I - + 4 - 2 UPDATED - Five Alarms in Charlotte - Details and Data


Five alarms were struck in Charlotte on Wednesday at a cardboard recycling facility. (And following a three-alarm church fire over the prior night, no less!) The incident was ably covered by both local media and FireNews.net via Twitter.

Additional incident details were gleaned from assorted Facebook pages and conversations in the Carolinas Fire Page Yahoo group, including a run card provided by Hunter Lacy.

Incident Details

Though Charlotte has had four- and five-alarm fires in recent decades, this may be the first instance where all companies through the fifth alarm were committed for a length of time versus quickly returned to service.
