Durham NC 2nd Apartment Fire
At 0330 Durham Firefighters were called for their second working apartment fire of the Christmas shift. Durham police on scene immediately after dispatch advised units of a working apartment fire with heavy smoke visible. First due E-8 found a two story brick apartment complex with smoke showing. Engines 3 & 8 advanced a line upstairs and found a well involved bedroom fire. L-1 vertically ventilated the structure. The fire was knocked down in 10 minutes, and units remained on scene for an hour and a half overhauling the apartment. The following units responded:
E-8, E-3, E-9, L-1, L-2, SQ-1, Mobile Support 1, Medic 8, and Battalion 1. The fire is under investigation.
