At Approximately 4:01 AM on 6/21/17 WCLSC, Abingdon Fire Dept., and Brumley Gap Volunteer Fire Dept. were dispatched to a residence on Brinkley Road in Abingdon, VA for a reported structure fire. Upon arrival, crews found the structure was fully involved with heavy flames that had spread to a nearby vehicle. Only occupant of the home was safely outside when crews arrived and was released after being thoroughly checked out by WCLSC crew members. WCLSC remained on standby as fire crews battled the blaze, and provided rehab services to Firefighters as they exited the structure. AFD and BGVFD worked diligently for hours to control and contain the fire until all flames were out. All crews safely cleared the scene and returned back to their stations.
