Still piecing together details of Bay Leaf's incidents this morning. From this WRAL story and WTVD photos, they responded to a pair of working fires. House fire at 801 Carrington Drive dispatched about 2:20 a.m. Single-family dwelling of conventional construction, with 3,224 square-feet. Built 1983. Defensive operations due to heavy fire, with Ladder 25 operating along with at least one deck gun. Durham Highway and Stony Hill as mutual aid. Here's a WRAL reader photo:

Shortly after the house fire was dispatched, Wake Forest, Stony Hill, Durham Highway, and Raleigh Engine 4 were dispatched at 2:38 a.m. to a structure fire at St. Luke Catholic Church at 12333 Bay Leaf Church Road. That's just down the road from the Bay Leaf fire station. One-story church with brick exterior and 5,776 square-feet. Built 1988. Arriving units found a working fire in the sanctuary, along with a sport-utility vehicle that had crashed into the structure, and the body of an adult male who was deceased from a gunshot wound.
