The fire was found early Tuesday morning burning along the steep slopes in undergrowth and brush, and appears to be a result of a lightning strike from overnight storms.

The Troutville Volunteer Fire Department, Fincastle Volunteer Fire Department - Company 4, and Eagle Rock Volunteer Fire & Rescue all aided with personnel and resources.
