Here's something you don't see every day. That's West Edgecombe and Rocky Mount firefighters at a rock quarry, where a large drilling machine caught fire. The photos are fromBob Bartosz, who submitted same to the Rocky Mount Telegram. (His first rock quarry fire in sixty plus years of fire photography, he confides.) As for the incident, the machine was fully involved on arrival of WEFD. Crews requested mutual aid from RMFD, and Engine 5 was dispatched. The fire took almost an hour to control. Read the story and see a couple more photos. Next question, what's the most unusual vehicle fires that you have fought?
