Construction has started on the building that will eventually house the Blanket Volunteer Fire Department, reports BrownwoodNews.com.
The first of three phases of construction on the new facility was completed in July 2019. The first phrase entailed a concrete pad. To construct the building the fire department raised $12,000 through fundraising efforts.
To finish Phase 3, an additional $5,000 will be needed.
The Blanket VFD is still accepting funds from the public.
