Fire Causes $750,000 To Condos In Charlotte

Fire officials say a three-alarm fire Tuesday evening at a Myers Park condominium complex caused $750,000 damage.

No injuries were reported, but authorities say a dog died in the blaze at the Queens Station condos, on Queens Road.

Charlotte fire Capt. Rob Brisley said the blaze was reported shortly after 8 p.m. at the three-story complex in the 300 block of Queens Road. Firefighters found smoke and flames coming from the building when they arrived, and Brisley said it took 70 firefighters about 50 minutes to bring the blaze under control.

Resident Chris Wahl told WCNC-TV, the Observer's news partner, of the hectic moments when the blaze broke out.

"There was someone running, pounding, yelling there was a fire," Wahl told NewsChannel 36. "The place was lit up."

Another resident, Matt Dedrick told WCNC, "I grabbed my whole family and ran out. We're all safe, and I'm just glad everyone made it out alive."

Firefighters went through the units, looking for family pets. They found two cats unharmed but discovered that the dog had not survived. Brisley said investigators are working to determine a cause.

The American Red Cross provided assistance for families who were displaced. Brisley said four units suffered "significant damage."
