Salem Fire & EMS Respond to Fire at East Main 7-Eleven

The Salem Fire & EMS Department responded to a structure fire Monday afternoon at the 7-Eleven/Liberty Gas Station, 1715 East Main St., at approximately 12:41 p.m.  All of the people in the store were able to escape without injury, but the fire caused significant damage to the building and its contents.

The first unit arrived within three minutes of receiving the call and found heavy fire and smoke coming from the front of the building.  Due to the type of structure and the amount of fire, the Roanoke Fire & EMS Department also responded.  It took firefighters approximately 15 minutes to bring the blaze under control.

Approximately 30 personnel from the Salem Fire & EMS Department (Truck 1, Engine 2, Engine 3, Medic 802, Medic 803, Battalion 1 & Fire Medic 1), Roanoke Fire & EMS Department (Engine 4, Engine 5, Ladder 5, Medic 5 & Battalion 2) responded to the call.  The Roanoke County Fire & Rescue Department (Engine 3) provided assistance covering additional calls.

The Salem Fire Marshal’s Office and Salem Police Department are still investigating the fire and there is no damage estimate at this time.
