06/22/10 119 W, 2 I - + 20 - 15 OSFM Article on Pine Knoll Townes

This article appeared the Spring 2010 issue of Fire and Rescue Journal, as published by the Office of State Fire Marshal (OSFM). The author is myself, Historian Mike Legeros. It recounts the historic, multi-structure fire at a new townhome community on February 22, 2007. The narrative includes conditions leading up to the incident, and lessons learned thereafter. Photos include images from Legeros and Lee Wilson, who skillfully captured the scope of the rapidly spreading fire. That's his iconic shot on the first page. This PDF version has been stitched together from scan of the printed version. Watch the OSFM publications web site for the originating digital version. Read the article (2.2M), or click to view:
