Roanoke's bravest battle the cold and 2 houses in SE.


I’ll post more on the fire a little later. Engine #6 arrived with heavy fire showing from the “Charlie” side of the house of origin. They had flame impingement to the exposure on the “Bravo” side due to high winds from the west. Temperatures were in the mid teens with a wind chill factor making it to feel near to below zero. The Brothers from Station #6 laid in and went to work. Battalion Chief Jeff Beckner established command and coordinated the efforts. There were no injuries to Fire / EMS members but 1 civilian was transported for smoke inhalation.

Looks like another good job (and stop) by Roanoke’s Bravest…. WELL DONE LADS! More details later today.
Stay Warm, dry, safe and in house!
