Firefighters with Hanover County Fire-EMS battled a vehicle fire that caused a brush fire along Interstate 295 on Monday afternoon.
Crews responded at 1:59 p.m. to a tow truck carrying multiple vehicles that was on fire along a ramp between I-295 and U.S. 360. Hanover Fire-EMS said in a Facebook post that the fire spread quickly into the woods and created a large brush fire. After about 45 minutes, crews had it under control.
