At 12:30pm on Sunday, October 27th, the Galax Fire Department was toned out to a structure fire on Airport Road in Hillsville. Galax went as Tier II Mutual Aid. Hillsville Fire arrived to find a story and a half wood framed structure with fire in the basement. Hillsville made a quick knock on the fire by entering the basement through an exterior door. The fire was discovered by the homeowner who smelled smoke, opened the interior basement door where he was met by heavy fire, and then wisely shut the door back preventing fire spread into the main living area of the residence. Galax assisted with overhaul and cleanup. All units cleared at 2:30. Always a pleasure working with our brothers from Hillsville!!
