ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - Units with Roanoke Fire-EMS responded to the crash of a car into a building Thursday night in the northwest area.

The department’s heavy technical rescue team was brought in to stabilize part of the structure, which provides the only access to apartments in the upper part of the building.
