(Capcom's primary storyline)
Charlie was a Raccoon Fire Department firefighter who assisted the R.P.D. with the evacuation of the Apple Inn and surrounding area. As he and fellow firefighter "Len" scoured the boiler room for survivors, the poorly maintained boiler exploded, killing them both. The survivors discovered their corpses as Danny, another RFD firefighter, attempted to re-establish contact with the pair via his tactical radio.
