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

By Charles Kelleher Harris

The Board of Commissioners voted to annex the property at 9801 Brief Road at its board meeting January 8. This property has been designated as the future site of a new public park for the town. Annexation of that land simply brings the land officially inside town limits.
