05/05/12 149 W, 1 I - + 7 - 4 Ladder 2 First Due

That's one of Raleigh's reserve ladders at last night's commercial structure fire at 2809 Brewton Place. It's operating as Ladder 2, which found the fire after investigating smoke they and Engine 11 smelled/saw while returning from another call. The 1999 American LaFrance/LTI platform ladder (1500/300/93') arrived at a one-story metal garage building with 2,400 square-feet. Built 1969. Occupied by an auto repair business. Heavy smoke was showing. Lines were pulled and a supply line connected to the ladder truck. Crews made entry, first to the gated property and then to building, and quickly controlled a fire inside. Run card included E11, E19, E27, E21, L2, R2, B2, A1, C10, C20, C40. Finding fires by finding smoke is the oldest story in the book. What are some your great stories of sighting or sniffing out structure fires? See a few photos from last night.
