It was totally unexpected but these firefighters were ready.

They were taking part in the Rural Retreat Veterans Day Parade in Wythe County.

It started around 2:00 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

Around that same time, a fire broke out at a home just across the street from the parade.

Members of that fire department got right to work and put it out.
