As heard on the maverick morning show - 4/11/19
The explosion in Durham yesterday created a response across North Carolina. Fire and Rescue from several counties, including Alamance and Guilford, volunteered to send help to Durham firefighters, but it looks like everything is under control. Firefighters were already on the scene when the explosion shook downtown Durham yesterday. They were there because someone smelled gas and called 911. Luckily, a lot of the residents and workers in the building had already been evacuated when the explosion occurred.
