Lee Wilson took the top photo at 5010 Second Street, at Wednesday's haz-mat incident at a commercial building off Old Wake Forest Road involving a reported acid leak in a battery room. Dispatched about 12:30 p.m., with some companies responding from the haz-mat drill in Garner. The entry team had no readings. No injuries. Units on scene included E9, R1, HM1, SR2, A1, B1, B2, B3, C2, C71, EMS 7, EMS 2, EMS 11, M93, D3. See more pictures.

Mike Legeros took the bottom photo at the same location in April 2008. If memory serves, units were on scene for the same reported problem. See those photos, which are considerably duller than Lee's. Must have been an overcast day. Or just a less adept photographer. Both were "B" shift days. What are those odds? After extensive paper calculation, we compute the chances of "B" shift working on a given day in a given year as 33.33%. Next up, converting that value to a fraction. We'll work on that.
