07/29/11 131 W, 1 I - + 8 - 5 Heavy Smoke at McKimmon Center

Here's a photo and a pair of video links (before and arrival and pulling lines and initial entry) from Tuesday morning's fire at North Carolina State University's McKimmon Center on Gorman Street. Dispatched around 8:00 a.m. Engine 8 arrived with heavy smoke and a quickly controlled fire in a maintenance room in the rear of the building. Smoke removal took considerably longer, and two additional ladder companies were utilized. Recalling the radio traffic, the fire units included E8, E5, E20, E1, L7, L4, L1, R3, B3, A1, C10, C20. Credit photo and video to R. Craven, by way of reader and photographer Chad Simon. He works at the place, but was off that day. See prior posting about the fire. Click to enlarge:
