02/28/09 84 W - + 17 - 14 Route No. 10 Fire Department, 1955

Anyone heard of Route No. 10 Fire Department in Charlotte, from the mid-1950s? They first appear in the membership roster of the North Carolina State Fireman's Association for the year ending June 30, 1955. The chief is listed as R. A. Breyare. For the years ending June 30, 1956, and June 30, 1957, they're listed as inactive. The department disappears from the membership roster in 1958. Other member departments in Charlotte in 1955 were Oakhurst FD, Pinoca FD, Wilkerson Boulevard FD, and Woodlawn FD. More about former FDs.

Never heard of Route No. 10 FD, but Oakhurst VFD turned in Idlewild VFD which runs with Mint Hill and Matthews in the eastern part of Mecklenburg County.
