ROANOKE COUNTY, VA - 9:05 p.m. update from Roanoke County:

At about 6:15 this evening Roanoke County Fire and Rescue crews were dispatched to Vinyard Park in Roanoke County for a reported structure fire. When crews arrived they found a single-wide trailer fully involved in flames. Crews from The Vinton and Mount Pleasant stations fought the fire from outside the structure. It was difficult to access the trailer as it was located on a narrow gravel road. Firefighters used Brush trucks to reach the trailer.

The old trailer did not have electricity and was not being lived in. The trailer is completely destroyed with value estimated at $5,000-$10,000.

The fire is under investigation and believed to be suspicious. If anyone thinks they may know something that could help investigators please call the Roanoke County Fire Marshal's Office at 777-8732.

7 p.m. update:

Roanoke City, County and Vinton are all on the scene of a fire in the 200 block of Berkley Road.

Roanoke City tells us the call came in to them at 6:24 p.m. as a brush fire.

We're working to get more information.
