Firefighters injured after fire truck overturns in Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Officials say two firefighters were injured when a fire truck overturned in Charlotte Sunday morning.

According to the Cook’s Community Volunteer Fire Department, two CCVFD firefighters were responding to a vehicle fire on I-485 near Harris Boulevard around 11:30 a.m.

During this time, the members of the department were involved in a single-vehicle accident which caused the fire truck to roll over.

At this time, we want to thank the community for their thoughts and prayers during this event.

We are truly blessed that all injuries were minor and our crew was being watched over.
