Roanoke City Assist
At 7:49pm, Tanker 3 was dispatched to 30th St & Johnson NW to assist Roanoke Fire-EMS with a brush fire. When city units arrived they found a large brush fire on the side of a hill. Due to the size, the arriving commander marked a second alarm, adding additional units. With no hydrants in the immediate area crews shuttled water from the nearest hydrant which was roughly 5,000 feet away to the scene. No injuries were reported. The fire is under investigation.
