1.14.11 Fire Chief for the City of Charlottesville Charles Werner joins Coy to discuss the car fires on back-to-back days. Yesterday, a car turned completely ablaze in front of a county office building, and today, 29 North turned into a parking lot when a car caught fire in the middle of traffic, shutting down traffic on one of Charlottesville’s most important roads. Chief Werner gives background on the static-electricity based causes of these fires, and he also give ways to help you avoid such hazards. Also included in the conversation are a couple of house fire stories and an update on the piece of steel Charlottesville will receive from the fallen World Trade Center towers.
