01/11/13 144 W, 1 I - + 4 - 2 Two Alarms in Greensboro

Here's your evening hot shot from News & Record photographer H. Scott Hoffman, from this afternoon's two-alarm warehouse fire in Greensboro. See larger version and a second photo on the newspaper's web site. Speaking of farther away fires, it still burns my biscuits that I missed the R. J. Reynolds Plant #256 fire (see article in this OFM journal) in Winston-Salem on August 27, 1998. Learned of that one from a friend there. Thirteen engines and five ladders battled that blaze. Took nine hours to control. Would've taken the afternoon off, except for the unfortunate coincidence of a scheduled cat adoption after work. Arrgggh. That would've been a blaze to behold. The cat's still around, and he made my later wife happy, so all was good. I guess. (She probably married me for the thing...)
