Florence Township Fire Department

Initial fire department damages estimated at $1.5 million

A volunteer fire department is still without equipment after a weekend fire destroyed engines, tankers, and all kinds of firefighter gear. Insurance adjustors continue to estimate the damage, but the Florence Township Fire Department estimated the damage at close to $1.5 million.

17-year-old Cole Brandenberger and 87-year-old Ilo Cline both worked the polls during the Primary on Tuesday.

Tale of two poll workers

One polling place in Fort Wayne featured a worker not yet old enough to vote and another polling place was staffed by a woman who started working elections in 1955.
