Barn Fire
Charlotte Hwy, Mooresville

A small barn was fully involved when the call came in and unit responding were reporting a large column of smoke coming from the area.  Units from Shepherds, Troutman, Mooresville, and South Iredell responded to the scene.  The tankers were called in for support as there was not a close water supply.  Approximately 10 trucks were used in fighting this fire.  This location had another fire a few years ago, and the building that burned today was what was saved from the previous fire.  No cause at the time of the was determined and the Iredell County fire marshal was called in for investigations.


The building was about down when I arrived.
