No more 14-year-olds fighting fires

A cease-and-desist letter drafted by County Attorney Susan Robson will be sent to Marion County fire departments, baring residents younger than 18 from participating in firefighting.

County Commissioner Randy Dalke said Friday that a 14-year-old had recently participated in extinguishing an unidentified fire.

The commissioner said underage volunteers could assist by cleaning up, rolling up hoses, and supplying drinking water, but only after the fire was extinguished.
