08/01/10 204 W, 1 I - + 4 - 8 House Fire on Garner Road, Historic Homes in Raleigh

Lee Wilson has posted photos from last night's working fire at 1109 Garner Road. Engine 13 3 arriving at a one-story, wood-frame house, with 1,054 square-feet. Built in 1915, with tax records listing remodeling and additions in 1950 and 1982.  Heavy fire in the rear of the structure, which spread through the house. Reported subjects possibly still inside, though all were out safely, and with no injuries. Dispatched 8:24 p.m. and controlled at 9:05 p.m. One extra engine special called. See Lee's photos for additional details, and a list of units.

The building is one of Raleigh's many historic homes, which number in the dozens? The hundreds? Wonder how such data could be determined. Searching Wake County Real Estate Data seems the first step, but their search interface does not include queries for the year built. They could probably run a custom search, and perhaps have done such reports for the fire department or inspections department.

Don't see such a thing on IMAPS, either. New interface, however. When did that happen? Google searches such as "Raleigh historic homes" and "historic properties Raleigh" might find some odd data squirreled away somewhere. Somebody probably knows.
