And then the skies opened, and Raleigh's warmest Fourth on record became one of the busiest for fire calls in several months. Can't readily recall the last such "storm surge." Three working fires in the city, on Cobble Creek Lane Oakshyre Way (house), Gemini Drive (house), and Wake Forest Road (commercial garage). A number of vehicle accidents on I-540 and I-440. Numerous other incidents and incident types. Plus special units detailed to special events. Ask dusk approaches, sounds like things are getting back to normal. Companies returning to their regular areas. Below is Ladder 2 operating on Cobble Creek Oakshyre . We'll get cracking on the pictures later, or maybe tomorrow. Fireworks to see downtown, first. And some clothes to dry out. Click to enlarge:
 





Also, one firefighter was injured on Cobble Court (correct street name Oakshyre Way) and transported to WakeMed. Have heard he’s okay, but we’re inquiring for official word. Recalling radio traffic, believe it occurred as interior crews were exiting due to deteriorating conditions. More information as it’s known.
