Shortly after the Crew from Charlotte Fire Department, West Charlotte Engine #13 respond and extinguished a Vehicle Engine Fire in West Charlotte, North Carolina this evening.

We learned that Captain Jeff Richardson will soon be promoted to Chief. Jeff has been the Captain for West Charlotte for more than five years, and was also a fire fighter in the same district and shared that this is a bitter sweet moment.

The West Charlotte Fire crew is an important partner in the community and neighbors feel safer because of their unselfish service to protect each of us.

His crew share that he will be sorely missed, but are excited for Jeff’s well deserved promotion to Chief. We spoke to Captain Richardson briefly after he and his crew extinguished the Vehicle Fire and have provided the Video of that interview below:

As for the Vehicle Fire – The driver & the passenger both got out safely with no injuries.
