05/06/10 109 W, 2 I - + 9 - 7 Fire Tower Fights Fire Tower Fire

Would you believe a fire tower catching fire? That's what happened near New Bern today. The 120-foot structure in Tuscarora, unmanned for at least eight years, caught fire this morning after Craven County workers were preparing to install some radio equipment. Advised the Fire Marshal, after the electricity was cut on, smoke started a-billowing. Township 7 Fire Department responded, and requested New Bern's 100-foot platform to assist. Though it couldn't reach the top, it was high enough to spray into the building through the broken windows. Crews cleared in a couple hours. Everybody had a high time. Sources: Sun Journal, WITN.
