*CG locator Roanoke Co.

It happened around six o'clock on
Crowell Gap Road just off of Route 220.

Investigators believe a tree falling
on a power line is what sparked the
fire.

When crews arrived, they were
concerned about two nearby homes, one
is a retirement community, the other
is a residence that was directly in the
line of fire.

In fact, we're told flames came

within fifty yards of that home.

Firefighters were able to protect
both those structures but it wasn't
easy because of the high winds.
