AUGUST 14, 2019- ENGINE 1 SECOND DUE TO HOUSE FIRE ON LOUISBURG RD

At 22:52, Raleigh-Wake County 911 dispatched a Raleigh Fire Department box alarm to Louisburg Rd & Dansey Dr. Because the location was closest to New Hope Station 1, New Hope Engine 1 was added to the call. Engine 1 arrived second due, confirmed the fire was in the county, and reported a working fire at an abandoned house at 5000 Louisburg Rd, with fire showing from the rear of the structure.

New Hope Car 1 requested Engine 4 to respond, and due to the nearest hydrant being on the other side of Louisburg Rd, requested New Hope Tankers 10 and 11, and Rolesville Fire Department Tanker 157. Crews were able to quickly knock down the fire, with no injuries. WC 1 from Wake County Fire Marshall’s Office was requested for the investigation of the fire.
