Last night there was a terrible fire in Hancock, on the Mud Creek Road. Unfortunately the house was a total loss, but no one was injured.

There were also a number of Fire Departments in the Western part of the County that the County Coordinator had stand by their stations in case another large incident happened.

Please, if you've thought about volunteering in some fashion, the time is now to talk to your local Fire Department.
