Roanoke Firefighters were out early this morning fighting a fire at the Whitney House Apartments. Engine 10 was still on the call when I got to work this morning. I have not gotten too many tidbits of information so I will report what I have seen on the news and what Roanoke.com has reported. The news footage shows that it was an impressive fire. It seems as though the firefighters had their work cut out for them when they got on scene. No lives lost, no firefighters injured, the rest of the building was saved. What more could you ask for.
