11/25/11 116 W, 1 I - + 6 - 5 Restaurant Damaged in Downtown Youngsville


That's Wake Forest Ladder 1 operating at 120 Main Street in downtown Youngsville last night. They were special-called for a structure fire at a two-story commercial structure. Here's a brief news story on same. Fire started in an upstairs apartment, and spread to a restaurant on the first floor. Franklinton and Brassfield fire departments also responded, along with Wake Forest Ladder 1, Engine 1, and Car 2. The 1912 building burned last year, as this North Raleigh News story notes. The fire on September 26, 2010, started in the restaurant. Yours Truly wandered that way last night, and enjoyed the post-meal drive. Overhaul was underway by then. See those photos.
   





Is that a rain roof that was built on top of the previous flat roof? Was WFFD L1 able to cut through both roofs?

Recalling the radio traffic, it sounds like the building had a second roof atop the first. I recall they talked about having some success cutting through both layers.
