ROANOKE COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ) - Fire crews are reminding the public about high fire danger after a rubbish fire early Tuesday.

At 5:20 a.m. November 30, 2021, Roanoke County crews were called to a fire in the woods in the 6000 block of Two Ford Road in Cave Spring. No structures or vehicles were threatened, with the fire confined to a rubbish pile that measured about 50 feet by 50 feet.

Fire crews say the fire was knocked down in about 20 minutes.
