Move-ups E4 to Station 8, L8 to Station 1, E21 to Station 1 (canceled en route). Approximately 15 people displaced. Three units rendered uninhabitable. One civilian transported for smoke inhalation. Caused determined as incendiary. WRAL reporting police believe related to earlier domestic dispute. Dark 'n' rainy photos forthcoming from Legeros.

E17 was later dispatched, but isn’t noted above as special-called. They were sent a couple hours later, versus Engine 9, which was called at the beginning of the incident. Perhaps for to assist with investigation.

Correct! E17 was called for relief about 1.5 hours after the initial dispatch. C20 (assigned) was acting on E9, so the entire company was called for the investigation.
