05/01/13 77 W - + 4 - 2 Vehicle Fire in Wal-Mart Parking Lot (Video)

Found via random YouTube searching, here's an "other side of the fence" video of a vehicle fire in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart of Wilmington on February 7, 2013. High winds as winds, which you can see and hear. Plus citizen commentary/reactions. Credit to Chris Heath. (Can't find much in the way of YouTube-posted fire video from around our state. Guess we take what can get.)

Pretty funny comments from camera guy about why the chief was there. “He aint got no water”.
Sadly most people don’t realize the very important role he/she played at this incident.

Just for reference, units on scene are Wilmington Battalion 2 and what should be (hard to tell in the clip) Engine 3.

Thanks, MC.

Saw that traffic preemption might be in the works in Wilmington, per this week’s news.

Also, have you guys placed a heavy rescue in service down there, consolidating the squads? Heard something about that.

Rescue has been ordered. Traffic preemption would be nice. Been mulling it over for a few years.

Engine 8 covers the walmart now. Engine 3 was there additionally however.
