05/01/14 160 W, 4 I - + 8 - 4 Recreation Vehicles Burn in Apex

What was that plume of smoke to the west on Sunday afternoon? Recreational vehicles burning at a storage facility at 1804 Holt Road in Apex. That's a couple blocks east of Highway 55, and at the end of Country Hearts Lane.

The first arriving unit (Battalion 1, if memory serves) found two RVs and a boat fully-involved. He requested additional tankers. (Believe it was controlled within about 20 or 25 minutes. Readers can correct me and/or add details.)

The call was dispatched at 3:40 p.m. The run card of dispatched units was Apex E3, E1, E4, E2, L3, Tanker 1, Tanker 2, B1, C1, C2; Morrisville P3; Swift Creek Tanker 6, Tanker 2, and Apex EMS 41. Photographers Kevin Mcvey and Jason Thompson went to the scene and have posted pictures.

Recall an earlier multiple-vehicle fire in Apex at a commercial facility in December. Read that post. They always have interesting incidents in and around Apex.
