An open house is slated for July 14th.
Ross County's Huntington Township started a volunteer fire department a half-century ago, and that is being celebrated this month.
Huntington Township Trustees approved a resolution to start the department on July 2nd, 1962, but they were not prepared to fight any fires for a while later.
"It wasn't until the latter part of 1963 when they actually got a fire truck, and for years they were called the truck-less fire department," said Huntington Township Fire Chief Larry Cuckler.
A special open house is planned for 11am to 7pm on July 14th at the Fire Department at the corner of Blain Highway and State Route 772.
