Two fires that consumed well over 200 acres Thursday and Friday caused fire fighters to work anywhere from 8 to 14 hours each day trying to consume the flames. Due to the small numbers, crews worked in pairs.
There are three paid fire fighters, and 20 volunteers. Fire Chief Walter Fairbanks says that isn't enough when fire seasons hits, and they're faced with large fires. More volunteers would mean faster response and less stress on the volunteers and fire fighters.
Those interested in volunteering can drop off an application at the Cisco Fire Department.
