FireNews finds this dramatic photo posted by the Wilmington StarNews of this afternoon's major fire at an optical fiber plant at 310 N. College Road, and the billowing smoke that was seen across town. The plant's brigade began fighting the fire prior the arrival of the Wilmington Fire Department, which the article says sent eight trucks to the scene. They were assisted by the New Hanover Fire Department, which also helped cover calls in the city. The fire was controlled in about an hour. Read the article, and see more photos.
