SAN MANUEL — The Linn-San Manuel fire chief wants the public to know that despite losing much of their equipment, his firefighters will continue to serve the community.
A fire destroyed the all-volunteer department’s station after 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Along with burning down the building, the blaze ruined a pumper truck, rescue gear and medical equipment. The department still has one tanker and two brush trucks, which were with the firefighters at a Christmas party in Edinburg, fire Chief Domingo Hinojosa Jr. said.
