Two Fires at Same Time Test Charlotte Firefighters

No one was injured in two large fires that required nearly 100 firefighers to put out, reports The Charlotte Observer (

The unrelated fires both started around 7:30 p.m. No one was reported injured and the cause of both fires was still being investigated late Tuesday.

The first fire happened at 1210 East 36th Street, just off the Plaza. It took 60 firefighters an hour and 41 minutes to put out the fire.

Around the same time, firefighters were also called out to Parview Drive North after neighbors saw smoke and flames coming from a house, said Charlotte Fire Department Capt. Rob Brisley.

Shortly after firefighters arrived, the home’s roof collapsed and first responders focused their efforts on saving nearby houses.
