Five firemen were in a heated debate with the mayor and council, this because they were fired from their volunteer positions, but after a fight they got their jobs back.

During a meeting Thursday, the fired firemen expressed their concerns to the mayor and council. Soon after, the firemen were asked to re-submit their applications for review and with a four to one vote; all five were given their jobs back.

Former fire chief Eber Pickens was not reinstated. That reason was not discussed.
