On Saturday night, the Warren County Fire & Rescue (WCFR) was dispatched to Shenandoah Farms for a large outdoor building fire that ended up engulfing multiple smaller buildings, passenger vehicles, and a recreational vehicle.

Personal took three hours to extinguish the fire, and no injuries were reported.

Again on the same night, a dwelling fire was reported in the 10th block of West 17th Street involving four passenger vehicles in Front Royal. Due to most stations working on the Shenandoah Farms fire, additional aid was called to help stop the flames.

Two residents were treated and released on scene, with no other injuries reported.

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office Special Problem and Drug Enforcement units (SPADE) stopped a vehicle for speeding on April 28th.

During the stop, a K-9 used a free-air sniff to notify the officers of the presence of narcotics.

Following a search of the vehicle, the officers confiscated 1000 Fentanyl laced oxycodone pills with a street value of $40,000.

Fentanyl is 50-100 times stronger than morphine and can be lethal with as little as 2 milligrams.
