We recently uncovered this vintage radio traffic of the Raleigh Fire Department operating at a three-alarm fire off Edwards Mill Road on July 21, 1990.
It was recorded by veteran fire buff (and museum founding member) Jeff Harkey during a period of severe storm activity. The ninety minutes of radio traffic–both before and after the major incident–has been compressed to about 29 minutes, with gaps of silence removed.
The audio recording has been posted to our YouTube channel:
