07/01/11 105 W, 2 I - + 4 - 0 Beltline Brush Fire Parking Deck Protected

Hot weather and dry weather equals fire weather. Here's a brush fire on the Beltline this afternoon just west of Six Forks Road with Engine 9 and Engine 16, plus Rescue 3 for rehab. Engine 9 found fire extending from the ground to the tree tops. Engine 16 was directed to the service road behind North Hills Mall, to protect the parking deck. They connected to a hydrant, and supplied Engine 9 with three-inch line through the woods and over the fence. The spectators got a good show, as did the rubber-neckers.
