02/22/09 96 W, 1 I - + 12 - 14 The Big Fire, Two Years Ago

A reader reminds that today is the two-year anniversary of the Pine Knoll Townes fire, one of the biggest in the city's history. Five alarms, 12 structures, 38 homes damaged or destroyed, 29 families and 72 people displaced, $4 million damage, four engines pumping, four aerial streams flowing, hundreds of firefighters, 13 outside units at Raleigh stations. Read the blog postings from then: Big Fire summary, Big Fire, Big Fire Resources, Big Views. See photos from that day by Lee Wilson and Mike Legeros. There are also some aftermath photos and panoramic photos from Legeros.

That’s one I will never forget. I’m sure anyone that was there will agree.
