11/15/10 69 W - + 2 - 6 Mutual Aid to Zebulon, 1996


Found during random reading of Raleigh Fire Department log books, here's an interesting entry and one that references a bit of eastern Wake County history. Readers who remember, please reconstruct the events of that late afternoon and early evening. Maybe we can dig out some photos as well.

Request for service - Zebulon Fire Dept mutual aid for tornado





Two tornados travel through Zebulon on afternoon of 4/15/1996. The first one takes out part of Westside Mobile Home Park, a car lot, and part of the Wedgewood neighborhood. The second tornado destroys another part of Town including a building at Zebulon Middle School. Multiple fire departments responded to assist, including RFD Engine 13. We’ll attempt to locate photos from the day and days following.

I believe Fairgrounds and YRAC were involved in that assistance, as I’ve seen certificates of appreciation for the incident in our (WWFR) things.
