02/10/14 311 W, 4 I - + 3 - 1 Smoke Showing | Yesterday's Mobile Home Fire

This column of smoke was seen Sunday morning, after a trailer caught fire at Stony Brook North Mobile Home Park. That's off Trawick Road, off Brentwood Road. And one of the few (?) trailer parks in the thick of the city. (Readers can correct me on that.) First picture is while traveling north on Raleigh Boulevard. That's maybe five minutes after dispatch, but before Engine 11 had arrived. Working fire assignment had also already been dispatched, based on multiple callers.

Second picture is after entering the park, on Stonybrook Drive. (Wait, Stonybrook and Stony Brook? Which one's the correct spelling?) The mobile home, located on Branchwater Circle, was "half involved" with heavy fire. Or, if you prefer, fully involved in half the structure. Photos by Legeros coming soon to the photo site. Some were also posted to Twitter and Facebook, early yesterday.

Here's the incident description: 

Mobile home fire at 155 Branchwater Circle at Stony Brook North  Mobile Home Park. Working fire dispatched while units were en-route due to multiple callers. Engine 11 reporting heavy column of visible from Capital Boulevard. They arrived to find a single-wide mobile home with half of the structure involved with heavy fire. Dispatched 7:55 a.m. Controlled 8:19 a.m. Cause determined as accidental. Three people displaced, and transported to hospital: one adult and two children, with minor burns (adult) and smoke inhalation (children). Units on scene included E11, E19, E21, E_, L2, L8, R1, B2, A1, C401, EMS 62, D1.

That was the morning's second working fire in Raleigh, and the second with one or more occupants injured. Read some of those news stories: WRAL #1, WRAL #2, WTVD #1, WTVD #2. (Was a suitably busy news day, with the afternoon bringing the fatal fall of a man off an overpass on I-540 at Highway 70. Google for that story.) Click to enlarge:
