 Volunteer firefighters in Madison County want to build a new fire hall, and county commissioners are doing what they can to help.

The commission discussed helping the Harvest Volunteer Fire Department apply for a loan worth nearly $1 million Wednesday. Commissioners said they are willing to do what they can to help because they want volunteers to have the equipment to better protect the community.

"This is treemill money that they are using to build this facility," explained Commissioner Phil Vandiver. "Anything we can to do to make that a cheaper process, we are willing to work with them and help them out on."

The department has already picked out a plot of land for the new fire hall. It is right across the street from the current Fire Station Number 1.
