Structure Fire on Saddlewood Drive
Wednesday, May 4, 2016
Personnel from Station's 50, 51 and 55 worked tirelessly for over 2 hours to extinguish and overhaul the fire. In the process of fighting, fire personnel from New Hope Fire Department found 3 small bunnies behind the structure.

EMT's from CMVFR and Gaston County EMS provided care and comfort to the bunnies who were partially covered in soot from the fire. Eventually CMVFR personnel took the bunnies to Connie with Creekside Wildlife Rescue in Shelby who took them in at short notice and will provide rehab to the newborn bunnies! No other injuries were reported and the Gaston County Fire Marshal’s office is investigating the cause of the fire.
