Sissonville Fire Station open again

A new fire station in Sissonville is open now. It's named after longtime chief Thomas K. Johnson who was with the fire department in some capacity from 1961 to 2011 and then retired. Two years ago, the fire station burned to the ground, and this weekend's ribbon cutting marked a moment of victory for firefighters who not only lost their place of employment with the fire, but also the history of the building. Station 26 is up and running now, rebuilt largely with FEMA assistance and public donations. The fire station had been running out of Charleston Auto.
