A fire destroyed the Dundee Volunteer Fire Department in Ohio County around 7:00 Saturday night.
14 News is told the department has 17 firefighters on its roster. Many of them gathered on Sunday to show their support for each other and the community.
"Of course, there was nothing we could do. All of our equipment was inside," Fire chief Danny Pogue says.
Chief Pogue says Saturday night's fire was reported by a passerby who saw smoke coming from the building. Nearby fire agencies quickly coming to put the fire out.
He tells 14 News that the building, which has been home to the department since 1978, is a total loss.
"It was terrible. It was one of the worst days of my life," says Becky Pogue, firefighter and treasurer for the department.
Chief Pogue says the cause of the fire is still under investigation. He says the truck is plugged into a wall outlet to charge equipment like flashlights and cameras on the vehicle.
