On Tuesday night, the 911 Center became quickly inundated with calls for a large fire located in the Town of Orange behind businesses along Caroline Street. OVFC units answered the call and found a massive stock pile of railroad ties on fire. After multiple hours and assistance from Norfolk Southern the fire was contained.

The fire remains under investigation and was deemed suspicious in nature.
