A volunteer fire department in eastern Kentucky has closed due to a lack of personnel and other problems.
Pike County Emergency Management Director Doug Tackett says the department will need to be restructured to reopen and that process began on Thursday. He says the goal is to get it operating again as soon as possible.
Until that happens, Tackett says three other nearby volunteer departments will provide fire protection to the area.
