Roanoke County firefighters are camping out because of a washed out road. Yesterday firefighter Harold Chrimes (Crimes) parked his camper on Bradshaw Road. It will serve as a staging area and be manned 24- hours a day until the washed out road is repaired. Otherwise it would take rescue personnel up to 40 minutes to respond to the dozens of residents who live on the stretch of road that was cut off. V-Dot hopes to have the road repaired by Saturday.
