Volunteer Fire Department De-Certified

The 3-Point Volunteer Fire Department is no longer certified by the state to operate as a fire department, and efforts are underway by a group of 3-Point residents to form a new fire volunteer fire department in that community. Until this happens, Williamsburg Fire and Rescue will be responding to fire and emergency calls in the area. Whitley County Judge-Executive Pat White Jr. said he received a letter from the state fire commission Friday notifying him that 3-Point was no longer recognized as a "qualified certified" fire department.
