Damaged fire station repairs underway


A Clearfield Co. fire hall damaged after a car ran into the building is starting to rebuild.  Bent steel beams and crunched metal siding still stand where a truck slammed into Burnside fire hall in May.

It's taken nearly two months to find the materials needed and with finances tight the department is doing the work itself.

Burnside volunteer fire department, like a lot of volunteers, relies on fundraisers and donations to survive.  Insurance is covering supplies but the labor is being donated within.

The biggest part was cleaning the inside up, said department chief David Hughes

Materials are trickling in.

"It's been slow, but it's come along now.

A new window will be installed where the damage is already done. Lumber was bought to replace the framing, but the construction is all done by the hands of the volunteers.

"We're doing most of the work ourselves," said fire department president Elsie Weakland.

The cost of repairs, more than $8,000 is paid in full by the driver's insurance. Police said Bryan Deyarmin took off after crashing into the building and is facing charges.

Hughes said the work will begin as early as Tuesday and hopes to get its hall fundraisers back on track by the end of summer.
