01/16/10 108 W, 1 I - + 3 - 7 Fire on the Train
As companies cleared this morning's major fire in Cary, a couple units were dispatched to a vehicle fire at the train station around 8:35 a.m. The rolling stock in question was an Amtrak train arriving in a few minutes. Engine 2 was dispatched, and Battalion 2 upgraded the response to include Cary Engine 20 and Ladder 5. There was a reported strong smell of smoke aboard, and crews from the two engines stayed on scene for a stretch, investigating the source. Ladder 5 was quickly cleared. Passengers milled about at the station, and perhaps pondered the soot-stained personnel, still soiled from the morning fire. Pics from Legeros forthcoming.
Do they get to count this as train-ing?
