Description submitted by Garland Cloer, Fire Marshall

This is in the Riverwalk Community on the Catawba River near the Alexander and Iredell County Line. The community does not have a public water supply so a water supply had to be established. The hazardous weather on January 30, 2010 caused responding units to be struck on the ice and snow covered hills in the private gated community. Several pieces of apparatus slid into the side ditches and had to be towed before they could be placed into service. Firefighters put up a valiant fight, but Mother Nature seems to always win.

The house was still under construction and the estimated loss is over 1 million dollars. The fire is still under investigation.

The responding departments were; Stony Point, West Iredell and Monticello Fire Departments.
