2 years after fire, Sissonville VFD has new home

SISSONVILLE (AP) — The Sissonville Volunteer Fire Department has rebounded from a fire that destroyed its headquarters two years ago.

The department is celebrating the opening of its new headquarters.

A state grant and donations across the country helped pay for the project.

Fire chief Tim Gooch tells WCHS-TV that a donation from a young boy kept the firefighters from losing hope.

Gooch says Joshua Shaffer gave $45, his entire savings, to help rebuild the station.

An electrical problem caused the accidental fire at the old station in October 2010.
