Edgecombe County requested ATF’s NRT assistance given the large number of resources required to investigate the incident. The NRT provides an immediate and sustained nationwide response capability, typically deploying within 24 hours of notification, with state-of-the-art equipment and highly qualified ATF personnel specializing in fire origin and cause determination.


“This is a very important collaboration, given the size of this facility and the role this distribution center played in the community,” said Charlotte Field Division’s Special Agent in Charge Vince Pallozzi. “ATF will work in partnership with local and state fire and law enforcement agencies to assist in any way we can.”


Past NRT activations include such incidents as an explosion in West Texas that killed 14 people in 2013; a fire that destroyed the Beaufort County Black Chamber of Commerce; a commercial fire in Charleston, South Carolina, that killed nine firefighters in 2007; and national-level incidents such as the 9/11 terrorist attack on the Pentagon and the Oklahoma City bombing.

ATF is the federal agency with jurisdiction for investigating fires and crimes of arson. More information on ATF can be found at
