6 Homes Destroyed, Several Damaged in Massive Fire in Mooresville


MOORESVILLE, N.C.- At least 10 homes were damaged after a huge fire in Mooresville early Wednesday morning, officials said.

Firefighters responded to The Reserve at Ashlyn Creek subdivision off Kistler Farm Road and Coddle Creek Highway near Mooresville Middle School around 12:30 a.m. 

Officials said no one was hurt in the fire since this was a new housing development and none of the homes were completed. 

There were 13 homes being built in the subdivision and of those homes, six were considered complete losses and one home suffered serious fire damage, according to investigators. Several other homes received minor damage from radiant heat. 

Authorities said the fire spread quickly and reached four alarms. More than 50 firefighters responded to the scene.

Officials believe the fire spread so fast because the houses were close in proximity.

"Well when you have several houses burning, there's some large flames, our main concern was to keep the neighbors safe and keep our firefighters safe, and to get the fire under control, and we did that just a bit ago," said Mooresville Fire Chief Curt Deaton.
