Whitley County Plans New Fire Department

  • {Kentucky}...The Three Point Volunteer Fire Department in Whitley County closed last month after state officials said its members did not have adequate training. Assistant Fire Chief Brandon Woods says the county is preparing to open a new volunteer fire department after being approved by the fiscal court and receiving a  letter from the state fire commission granting them permission to operate. The board will decide on the location of the new fire department when it meets Monday night.
