ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Roanoke first responders had to call out their Heavy Technical Rescue team to stabilize part of a northwest Roanoke building after it was hit by a car Thursday night.

Roanoke Fire-EMS says units were dispatched at 9:22 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 25 for a car into a building in the 2900 block of Oakland NW.

When crews arrived, they learned the car had damaged a supporting beam to a deck and access to the upper apartments.

As a result, the department called its Heavy Technical Rescue team to stabilize the deck and stairway, which was the only access point to the upper apartments of the building.
