A mobile home fire in Midway last Thursday morning was a "perfect example" of how an all-county volunteer fire department will not work, Quincy Fire Chief Howard Smith told the Quincy City Commission during a special workshop Thursday night.
Smith said it took Quincy fire fighters about eight minutes to arrive at the mobile home, owned by Cassandra Moore, in the 200 block of Buckskin Circle. There were volunteer firefighters on the scene but no efforts had been made to contain the fire, he said.
