TEUTOPOLIS -- People in Our Town are getting ready to celebrate its 175th anniversary. In the past decade, the fire department has seen some major changes.

Many people say Chief Tim McMahon is responsible for it. He's been chief about ten years. The department needed some upgrades and with the help of the community, it raised enough money to get a new building. It's right across the street from the old one.

McMahon doesn't like to take the credit. Instead, he shares it with his fellow firefighters. There's a lot of history in the department. They still have an old water pump and hose. They don't use it anymore, but it's one of the oldest in the state.
