House Fire

A call came in to the communications center of a house fire.  The first person on the scene called and advised of a working house fire.  Multiple departments were dispatched to the scene.  Departments responding were Shepherds, Lake Norman, Mt Mourne, Troutman, Wayside, Mooresville Rescue, Iredell County Air Van, and the SHP.  The house was putting out quite a bit of smoke and fire fighters made a interior attack.   Another group of fire fighters were on the roof venting.
