Usually, the Thomasville Fire Department is going to emergencies, not dealing with them at their own station. But that’s exactly what happened Friday afternoon after severe weather hit the Piedmont Triad.
The fire department took the brunt of the storm while firefighters were out helping others. Powerful winds ripped apart their roof at the fire station. Pieces were scattered across the road, some even damaged their vehicles in the parking lot. One vehicle had a cracked windshield and damage to the front end. Some firefighters were inside when it happened.
