Firefighters save family's Christmas

At a structure fire on Dec. 9, the Galax Volunteer Fire Department did not need to rescue any residents – but they did save as much of their Christmas as possible.

Firefighters responded to a structure fire on Peaks Mountain Road in Galax at 3:56 p.m. and found fire coming through a wall on the back side of the house, with heavy smoke pushing through all of the eaves.

Additional crew was summoned to help control the blaze. Firefighters noticed a Christmas tree with presents stacked all around. They split forces and moved the presents to safety outside.
