07/18/13 63 W, 2 I - + 2 - 4 Fully Involved Tractor Cab on Interstate 40

Seen yesterday morning during rush hour. Interstate 40 near the Durham Freeway. Photos from stories from WRAL and WTVD. How did we ever get by before mobile phones and the Internet? Bets on response? Durham and Parkwood, correct? Maybe three engines and a tanker, before it was all done?

First due should have been Parkwood 631 from Station 3 on Old Page Rd. due to direction. Would likely have gotten Parkwood 611 also, as well as a tanker. I don’t know those numbers, I’ve been out of DCo for too long, before they even used the current numbering system in fact.

Hey, there’s an idea for a discussion…. station/unit numbering system!!!

First due was Engine 631 (Parkwood), with Parkwood Engine 611 and Batallion 610 also responding. I believe a Bethesda engine responded as well.
