The Digital Courier out of Forest City has posted this photo of yesterday's commercial structure fire at Big Dave's Family Seafood. Alas, the site requires a subscription, so no additional details or even photo credit can be gleaned. Perhaps our readers in Rutherford County (do they exist?) can add details. Or you can use the below image to extrapolate all manner of information or presumptions about the incident, the structure, the tactics, and the outcome. (Never done that before, right?)
Thus it appears that (a.) the fire occurred during daylight, (b.) the structure was at least one-story in height, (c.) at least two firefighters were on scene, (d.) at least two different departments were on scene, or at least what looks like two styles of turnout gear, (e.) at least one chief officer was on scene, as that appears to be a white helmet, (f.) the fire vented through the roof at some point, and (g.) vertical ventilation was ordered at some point, as that appears to be a chainsaw.

It also appears that they were not ordered to wear SCBA’s neither.
