Suspicious fires on the Blue Ridge Parkway


Friday, March 25, 2016 This evening Company 2 units were alerted for a small brush fire on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Units had the small fire under control in about 30 minutes and in the process of clearing the scene. Brush 2 was proceeding up the parkway to find a spot to turn around and noticed what seamed to be smoke and fire on a nearby ridge. Due to the location and topography of this fire two more alarms were sounded for Co.3 and Co.1 for assistance. Units operated for a couple hours to contain this fire which was very suspicious in nature.
