There was a working fire at the Bojangle's on Western Boulevard yesterday afternoon. Alarm time around 2:30 p.m. Engine 8 first on scene. Ladder 1 also attending, as Ladder 20 was participating in high-rise training nearby at State. Single-story brick structure with 5,206 square-feet and an attic space. Fire in a storage room, with WRAL reporting same starting in the kitchen. Really burned their biscuits, so to speak. Two of three lanes of westbound Western Boulevard were closed, also says the news. That's a funny driveway and incline over there. 'Tis a fine breakfast destination. Hope they're back in business soon.

The Bojangle’s on Western Blvd is one of the top money makers in the franchise. It will not be closed long. On a lighter note, at least they did wait until after I was moved from EMS4 to have the fire.

When I attended State I heard that this location was the busiest one in the franchise. After going there a few times I could clearly understand why, but (for me) they were always efficient. Also add in all those “Tailgate Specials” on game day…

I’ve heard anywhere from 1st to 3rd. So, I went ot one of the head managers for the franchise (I transported her a couple of times years ago- almost delivered her kid) and she told me it was one fo the consistent moneymakers with Fuquay-Varina, Selma, and Clayton also being in the top three or four consistently.
