01/11/09 155 W, 1 I - + 15 - 9 Big Black Column of Smoke

County units were going to a woods fire on Tarheel Club Road. City units were going to a house fire on Haig Point Way. Which side of the Neuse River was that big black column of smoke coming from, which could be seen from the airport and probably farther out? New Hope 100 found it first, an abandoned house at 3124 Tarheel Clubhouse Road. Fully aflame and down to the ground. Tax records don't show a "before" photo, but describe the structure as one-story, wood-frame residence with a full basement and 2,706 square-feet. Built 1969. That is, if I'm reading the correct record. The "after" photo is below. Engine 27 pumped, New Hope Engine 2 Engine 8 supplied Engine 27, and tankers supplied Engine 2 Engine 8. Other units on scene included New Hope Brush 7, Engine 2, Tanker 9, Tanker 10, Tanker 11, EMS 16, EMS 5, and EMS D3. Incident time about 3:51 p.m.

Actually New Hope E-8 supplied 27 E-2 crew went to work
Also on scene NH Tanker 11
