12/18/10 716 W - + 7 - 7 Raleigh's Largest Commercial and Industrial Fires of Last Decade?


How many big commercial and industrial fires has the city seen in the last decade? The Penmarc Drive mystery photo inspired some thinking on that. Below is take one on such list. Your Historian started with all two- and three-alarm building fires since January 1, 2000. Plus ConAgra. Exclude some big non-structural fires. Electrical substations. Tankers on Beltline.

Deleted all single- and multi-family dwellings. Deleted dormitories, but retained other educational buildings, like Reynolds Coliseum. Remember that one? Also deleted a few two-alarmers where the companies were quickly returned to service. The results are below. Just over two-dozen over eleven years years. Three-alarmers in bold. Next question, what's missing?
