Grayson delegate's local office damaged by fire
The district office of Del. Charles W. Carrico Sr. (R-Grayson), located on Main Street in downtown Galax, was damaged in a small fire this morning.
Carrico said no one was injured in the blaze, which gutted an apartment building next door. He said his aide, who lives nearby, spotted flames on the roof of the office at about 7:30 a.m. A former state trooper, Carrico purchased the building three years ago and totally remodeled it. His office is upstairs and downstairs is leased space. He said damage to his building was largely limited to smoke.
"The fire departments of Hillsville and Galax responded," he said. "They did a tremendous job containing it and keeping it from destroying the whole block."
