Fire at 510 6th Street SW

Watch the Video and read the story here:

The Roanoke Fire-EMS Department responded to a structure fire on August 14, 2007 at 510 6th St.

The call was received through the 9-1-1 Center at approximately 5:23 p.m. The response of four Engines, two Ladder trucks, two Medic Units, the EMS Captain, two Battalion Chiefs, the Fire Marshal and the Investigation Unit for a total of 31 personnel responded to the scene.

When crews arrived they found heavy smoke and fire coming from all sides of the two story, wood frame structure. Crews immediately began to search the home for anyone trapped inside. The primary and secondary searches were ruled all clear. Firefighters attacked the blaze until the structure became unsafe. Everyone was then evacuated from the building and crews began a defensive attack from the outside of the structure.

There was no one in the home when the fire started. There were no injuries to civilians or Fire-EMS personnel.

The origin and cause of the fire are under investigation. This home appeared to be vacant.
