HOOPESTON -- The fire department needs your help. The massive fire at J & R Used Tire Company ruined the department's equipment. Petroleum covered it all and it's unusable.

A Family Fun Day will be held at McFerren Park, October 5, to raise money, but the costs are huge. 18-sets of gear will cost $40,000; a new fire hose, $30,000; a new fire truck, $200,000. The department has already spent $25,000 on tires.
