Roanoke Fire Impacts Traffic


Roanoke, VA - A grass fire broke out in Roanoke Monday afternoon causing some trouble for commuters along a busy road.

Video taken by ABC 13 along Shenandoah Avenue show the scene just before firefighters arrived.

The fire was in the 1800 block but was not contained to that area.

For several hundred yards, the grass between the Norfolk Southern train yard and Shenandoah were burning at one point.

No one was hurt, but the road had to be closed for a bit while the fire was put out.
