District 8 had started the morning off with a few calls before being requested by District 15 (Dunn) to respond around noon to a commercial structure fire. 848 responded and provided manpower as well as flowed master streams to help suppress the fire. 848 operated for several hours before being released by command and returned back to service. If you didn't know 848 is a 1989 Pierce Ladder that Buies Creek acquired from Cary Fire Department, that was refurbished in 2004.

The creek was busy on Saturday by starting off the day running mutual aid to Coats for a possible structure fire which turned out to be a live burn Erwin was conducting. Around 1700hrs. District 8 was dispatched to Maddox Hall on campus reference a commercial structure fire. 822 arrived on scene to find a 4 story commercial structure with nothing showing from exterior. 822's crew entered the building and found smoke inside of the basement. Other crews then conducted a search of the floors above the basement but found no on else occupying the building. 822's crew determined the smoke inside of the building came from a compressor that was faulty. Smoke was then cleared out of the building. Mutual aid was released, and all District 8 units were assignment complete and building was turned over to Campbell University. We want to say a special thanks to all the members that responded as well as assistance from Coats, Lillington, and Summerville Fire Departments.
