It's an anniversary the Brosville Volunteer Fire Department would like to forget.
One year ago a fire destroyed more than one million dollars worth of equipment and trucks.
Now from the floor to the ceiling, nearly everything you see in the Brosville Volunteer Fire Department is brand new.
"We're supposed to go help people in their time of need and in return people came and helped us," said Fire Chief Kevin Farris.
Most of it was donated from state grants or other departments. The new smell still lingers and the fresh paint still shines outside.
But as nice as all this sounds, none of it is supposed to be here.
"We were in good shape. We were almost out of debt and the fire took place," Farris said. "You really find out who your friends are and who your fellow firefighters are."
A year ago a fire ripped through the building destroying equipment the crew saved money to buy.
Two trucks turned into ashes leaving what volunteers thought would be lasting damage.
"I figured a year at least for a full recovery," Farris admitted.
Immediately neighbors and nearby schools sent letters offering money and condolences.
The donations replaced more than what the Brosville Fire Department needed.
"Right at eight months from the time of the fire til, we was back at 100 percent. And now I think we're bigger and better than we was. And it's just a blessing," Farris said.
Chief Farris has plans to make this place bigger.
The department has two trucks outside with no shelter.
The next big project is to add on.
