Mint Hill Family Escapes Overnight Blaze

A Mint Hill family of five and the family cat escaped an overnight fire at their home on the morning of Wednesday, Jan. 28.

The fire, which burned the roof off the family’s home at 7302 Forrest Rader Drive in the St. Ives neighborhood off Truelight Church Road, left two burnt cars in the garage, another burnt SUV in the driveway and mass destruction on the property.

“Property-wise it looks like a total loss,” said Mint Hill Fire Chief David Laeth. “There were five family members, and everyone is OK, but there is a lot of property loss.”

Laeth described the scene as he and firefighters first responded to the call around 3:30 on Wednesday morning.

Mint Hill’s Queen’s Grant senior wrestling standout Nic Mitchell already has one state championship to his credit, hopes to repeat next month

By Andrew Stark
Queen’s Grant High School’s Nic Mitchell has a plan to return to the top of the high school wrestling landscape, but his quest won’t end with just another state championship.
Mitchell has already reached the apex once, winning the 138-pound N.C. High School Athletic Association’s Class 2A title last season as a junior at High Point’s TW Andrews.
“It was something I will never forget,” said Mitchell, who moved to the Charlotte area this summer. “It was eye-opening because there were so many wrestlers all there for the same reason – to win a state championship – and it was great to come out on top.
“It was hectic. I got up at 6 in the morning, practicing two to three times a day, but I was so glad I did it. This year I brought the same work ethic and a level  head. It was great to win it, but that was last year and I can’t let what happened last year effect how I wrestle this year.”
