Please avoid the area around The Somerset Center Store. The building remains extremely unstable and passerby’s attempting a photo should not enter beyond the marked fire line tape. Also, the intersection remains active with traffic so we ask that you not hinder traffic to get pictures or video and risk causing other accidents in this area.
A crew off Engine 23 resecured the area today once again and we cannot stress how dangerous the existing structure is in its current state.
We would appreciate your help sharing this notice with others. ... See MoreSee Less

Virginia General Assembly recognizes June 2019 as Move Over Awareness Month in honor of Lieutenant Bradford Turner Clark. Lt. Clark was struck and killed by a tractor-trailer while he was outside of his fire truck responding to a crash on I-295.
During #MoveOver Month, we’re urging you to move over when you see flashing blue, red or amber lights on Virginia’s highways. Please give first responders and law enforcement officers room to do their jobs; move over and slow down.
Remember, it’s the law. Virginia law states that when approaching a stationary vehicle that is displaying flashing blue, red or amber lights, drivers shall:
Proceed with caution and, if reasonable, yield the right of way by making a lane change into a lane not adjacent to the stationary vehicle or:
If changing lanes would be unreasonable or unsafe, proceed with due caution and maintain a safe speed for highway conditions.
