    It's been dubbed as the "King Street Fire". It took place in Elizabethtown, NC, on, well, King Street. It's the biggest structure fire Bladen County has seen in the last half-century that I know of.

    It was a mexican grocery store, a laundromat, a christian bookstore, and a real estate agency. We gained control of it before it took out the landmark tire shop on the right end.

    6 departments, five of which were from Bladen County. Lake Waccamaw in Columbus County was gracious enough to send us the tall elevated master stream.

    Phoenix had one of those here a few years ago. Was a real wizbanger and funnily enough started in a Mexican Grocery store.
