Hearne VFD begins building repairs
The Hearne VFD suffered a fire in their bay a couple of months ago that damaged the building and totaled this truck. According to Richard Dawson, Hearne VFD President, the building and equipment were all insured and the insurance will be helping with repairs and replacing the ruined equipment.
The repairs to the VFD building will begin later this week or the beginning of next week. The VFD is still looking for a replacement truck that will meet their needs and have been using their other engine in the meantime. Other Volunteer Fire Departments in the area have been providing mutual aide to make sure that all the community needs are met.
The original cause of the fire is still unknown and the insurance company is still investigating.
