Turkey Creek FD still in need of volunteers
UPDATE: One Pike County volunteer fire department is in danger of closing. The Turkey Creek Fire Department does not have enough volunteer firefighters, and if they don't find more, then the department could have to shut down.

Having too few firefighters could put lives in danger, and if the fire department has to shut its doors, it could affect more than emergency response time.
