Greenland (NH) Voters Reject Fire Station

 

Voters turned down $2.9 million for a new fire station.  

People polling for the fire station, which also required a three-fifth approval, said they want it understood that they are not against the library project. Instead, Budget Committee member Bob Krasko they wanted the money put on hold until several issues can be worked out.

Fire Damages Fire Apparatus at Paola (KS) Fire Station

 
 

Deputy Fire Chief Bruce Hartig said the vehicle was pulled out of the bay earlier in the day and parked outside the station while firefighters performed standard maintenance. When a couple of firefighters went to drive the vehicle back inside, they discovered flames coming out of the dash area.  

Hartig said he is proud of his firefighters who worked quickly to call in the fire and put out the flames using a fire extinguisher. If left unchecked for a few more seconds, Hartig said the flames likely would have burst through the front windshield and spread to the exterior of the vehicle.
