Fire at 1428 Campbell Avenue

The Roanoke Times has an article: Fire destroys Roanoke home Wednesday night

On November 22, 2006, Roanoke Fire-EMS responded to a structure fire at 1428 Campbell Ave. The call came into the 9-1-1 Center at approximately 7:35 p.m. The response of three engines, two ladder trucks, three medic units, one EMS Captain, one Battalion Chief and the Investigation Unit for a total of 23 personnel responded to the scene. The fire was ruled under control at 8:30 p.m.

When crews arrived, they found a 2 story structure fully involved from the ground floor to the top of the residence. Crews extinguished the blaze and protected exposures that were beside the residence. Two additional homes were damaged due to the immense heat.

The home that was fully involved was under renovation and no one was living inside. Three residents from one of the exposures were displaced from their home. There were no injuries to citizens or Fire-EMS Personnel.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Damage estimates are approximately $80,000.

Not enough !!! If it had a 100 ft. Aerial you wouldn't need to get it so close !!! Lets get some more 75 ft. trucks.
