After three years of raising money to build a new fire station, the Brasstown Volunteer Fire Department is close to starting construction. So far, they’ve raised $65,000, with an additional $20,000 in pledges. This is enough to get the infrastructure started and make the department eligible for a mortgage, Fire Chief Paulette Tonielli said. “It’s just very exciting for all of us to be this close,” she said. Tonielli said they couldn’t have gotten this far in three years if it wasn’t for the support of the community. The department is asking for residents’ support again at its third auction fundraiser at 1 p.m. Sunday in the Brasstown Community Center on Settawig Road. For $15 per person, supporters can enjoy Brasstown Beef Firehouse Chili, cornbread, pasta, cookies, hot coffee and cider. The Pressley Girls will be musical entertainment.
