03/30/13 88 W - + 5 - 4 Collapse Zones Work

YouTube video from maw8908, capturing the collapse of an abandoned commercial structure that brought three alarms in Birmingham, AL, yesterday. Here's some fire blog coverage from Statter911 and Firegeezer. Been ages since we burned one that big 'n' dangerous in Raleigh. But our urban center isn't really densely commercial, at least any more. Looks like Birmingham's somewhat comparable to size to Raleigh. They have thirty fire stations, including an airport station. Check out that Bronto Sky-Lift in the video, with its unique articulating ladder.
