CHARLOTTE, N.C. – If you saw smoke near the Carolinas Medical Center’s University campus, don’t panic, it was only a dumpster fire by the northeast Charlotte hospital.

Several viewers sent Channel 9 pictures and videos of heavy black smoke and flames filling the air Wednesday night near CMC-University. 




Many were concerned about the heavy smoke they were seeing in the air, and one viewer told Channel 9 they saw the smoke spread to UNC Charlotte’s campus.  

Channel 9 has contacted the Fire Department to ask if there is a hazmat concern over what was in the dumpster since it was outside the hospital.
