03/06/11 92 W, 2 I - + 6 - 5 Fire Protection Maps, 1970

For your hysterical historical enjoyment, here are a pair of maps from a fire protection report created by the city planning department in 1970. The first shows Raleigh's primary and secondary fire districts. The second shows the county fire districts of the time. Theh latter is an interesting contrast to the present-day districts! See the entire report, which has been re-scanned in color and using the source document instead of a prior photocopy. Click once or twice to enlarge:
