Dumpster Fire Breaks out on N.C. State Campus

Posted March 30, 2007

A dumpster fire broke out on N.C. State University's Centennial Campus early Friday morning with reports of flames shooting 50 feet in the air.

The fire was reported by housekeeping staff near Research Drive and Main Campus Drive, but no major damage has been found so far.

Raleigh firefighters were on the scene to control the blaze, which was confined in the dumpster between a building and a retaining wall.

    I don't know about speechless, but I have it from a reliable source that it was very hot under the rim and needed some time to cool down.

    The dumpster and it's attorneys had no comment. They were afraid that Amanda Lamb would get a hold of it and twist it like a pretzel.

    Where is the interview with the dumpster? I've been told it was speechless after this horrible event.

    This story is still going? That dumpster must be full of stumps. It's no dumpster at all, it's a stumpster. An evil stumpster from the planet Clayton. Lock your doors. Close your windows. Hide your dogs.

    Don't let Amanda Lamb find out about the dumpster fire. She'll be doing a story trying to pin it on Trooper Harrison, even though he probably has an airtight alibi processing a DWI.

    Bluedevl - Your dog collar comment got reported? That IS lame. This is a victimless story, I can't imagine that comment offending anyone. Lame.
