A house fire early Wednesday morning in Roanoke County has been ruled accidental by investigators. Firefighters said they responded to the house fire around 1:45 a.m. to the 2400 block of Kingston Road, and had the fire under control by 2:30 a.m. When they arrived on scene, they found flames coming from the roof and three residents waiting outside. The fire was contained to the attic with damage estimates at around $35,000. 25 people responded to the scene, including 4 engines, 2 ladder trucks, 1 ambulance, 1 EMS Captain, 2 Battalion Chiefs, and the Investigation unit. Firefighters said they used about 1,000 gallons of water to put the flames out. County officials told WFXR the house did not have working smoke alarms.
