Firefighters in Roanoke worked to extinguish a fire at Taco Bell on Hershberger Road that happened around 3 p.m. on Tuesday. Employees first noticed the fire at about 3 p.m., while the fire inspector was in the building. Employees pointed the smoke out to the inspector before he called for crews to arrive on the scene.
