07/14/11 163 W - + 5 - 1 News Footage From Scotch Drive

WTVD posted this video story about yesterday's two-alarm house fire at 3453 Scotch Drive. Lightning struck the roof, and fire damaged the attic. New Hope responded as automatic aid with Raleigh, notes the story. Recalling radio traffic, they dispatched a number of tankers, to assist with water supply.

Additional incident information: E28, E22, E19, L5, R1, B1, New Hope engine on initial dispatch. Second alarm and working fire dispatched together: E25, E21, E7, E9, L2, B2, A1, C10, C20, New Hope Rescue 14. Also on scene: New Hope Car 2, and New Hope 100. Plus tankers for water supply. Plus medical. Dispatched about 6:00 p.m. Controlled within 30 minutes, if memory serves.

The city had another working fire later that evening, at an apartment building at 2644 Oberlin Road. Believe Zebulon had a working fire about the same time on Carroll Heights Road. Local temperatures had dropped to around 80 degrees around 10:00 p.m. Forecast today is considerably cooler. High eighties. Stay hydrated.

Great to see that platform in use for something other than big water. Kudos L-5!!
