Tooled down to Fuquay first thing this morning, for the aftermath of an abandoned building fire. Returned to Raleigh via 401. Bonus sight was a blue-light special some miles out of town. Five gentlemen with their hands behind their backs. Wonder what that was about. Left Bojangle's on South Wilmington Street as a second structure fire was banged out. That one was a tobacco barn around the corner from the first fire. Quickly extinguished. See the photos from the first fire.

Then this evening, rode the road to Rolesville. Reported tornado touchdown on North Main Street, plus a structure fire soon thereafter. Too dark for too many pictures by the time Yours Truly arrived. Should have left earlier, but was glued to the scanner. At least the scene lights were strong! See those photos, both from the fire and the unified command post at the fire station. Plus a couple shot of Rolesville's new ladder, but of course.

Thanks for making the trip to the southside this morning!

With gas being 3.45 gallon are you riding in a Ford Feista?

Honda Accord, manual, so the mileage is pretty good.

Wish I could make more road trips, but other stuff always seems to come up.

Maybe I can schedule a series of ride-alongs or hang-arounds at some future time.
