07/07/12 122 W, 3 I - + 9 - 6 More Severe Weather, More Working Fires

The hundred-plus heat wave has continued into the weekend. Thunderstorms have been passing through in the afternoons, and again sparked a string of fire calls on Friday. They included three working fires on Carterwood Court in Cary, Kings Castle Drive in Apex, and Legendary Lane in Morrisville. Believe all were started by lighting.

High winds brought down trees and power lines again, with a mess of damage around Apex. That included power lines across Highway 1 between Cary and Apex. Relief from this pattern is expected Monday or Tuesday.

Regarding the Morrisville fire, that's a two-story, wood-frame structure with 3,341 square-feet. Built 2011. Photos taken approximately 29 minutes, 47 minutes, and 65 minutes into the incident. See more photos from Legeros.

Run card for Morrisville included Morrisville P3, E1, L2, C3, C1, Durham Highway R5, R1, P4, Bay Leaf P258, P___, Durham E13, EMS 4, EMS 34, D5, T1.
