Cana Volunteers Assist with Huge Mt. Airy Fire Response
An early morning fire Monday gutted a downtown Mt. Airy structure, took out power and phone service and sent one fireman to the hospital.
Eleven area fire departments, including the Cana volunteer department, responded to the scene of the blaze in the factory building located at the corner of Oak Street and the alley running between Renfro and North Main Streets (known as Trinity Street). The building, known locally as “the old rope factory,” is located between the offices of The Mount Airy News and Old North State Winery.
One Cana fire fighter reportedly suffered a heart attack after leaving the scene. The firefighter was transported to Forsyth Medical Center in Winston-Salem by Carroll County Fire and Rescue. He was released in satisfactory condition later that night, according to Carroll County Emergency Medical Services director, Everette Lineberry. Lineberry declined to give the firefighter’s name.
