Update on Imperial Factory Fire:
Currently its burning way worst than before. The small fire is now big, and it's pretty busy on every road surrounding it.

It is going to burn down tonight because you can hear the structural support clasping! This is a happy night for me in Greenville but also a bad night in Greenville too because its fun to see things burning down, but now something so old!

Ill have more pictures in a few minutes!!!

(BTW, I believe I deserve a Reputation Point from everyone who reads this thread lol, just because of this update. lol)!!!

Sorry for the quality but its getting darker out here, and my phone can't take great pictures during the night!!! You heard it here first, lol (you really did because I was the 2nd person to see it, a cop saw it 1st, and then I ran up stairs and told you guys about it over the internet lol)





I liked the last one because you can see the water trying to extinguish the fire!!!

The reflector lied about the time being 4:30 because look when I first posted that the factory was on fire again!!!! I said that around 3:41, so I'm guessing it started burning at around 3:30 not 4:30!!!! lol

I have a real nice picture on my camera that I just sold for $150...It's probably the best picture of the fire because of it's perspective.

I don't know. I tried to find some info on this and couldn't find anything. There are still some parcels and pretty big chunks of land where Greenville and Winterville don't meet. It may have simply been an issue of Greenville moving down to meet Winterville at that point.

The reason I doubt this is pretty simple. If Greenville keeps snatching all of the prime commercial real estate from Winterville it will put a serious hurt on property tax revenues in Winterville. Winterville needs the money more than Greenville.

NC law also prohibits one incorporated city from taking another incorporated city's jurisdiction.

Even in Maryland one city can't just claim it away from another. Annapolis and Anne Arundel County have been fighting over this for decades and it has gotten ugly at times.
