Our View - Situation in RFD1 is mind-boggling

The situation in Rural Fire District 1 is mind-boggling.
It seems fairly simple. Havre Fire Department has had an agreement to put out fires in the district, a ring that runs around the outside edge of Havre.
Havre’s government said violations on fire codes have been found in the district, putting residents and firefighters at risk when fires occur. That includes the Havre Fire Department responding to a fire at a location where large amounts of flammable liquid were stored that the firefighters didn’t know about. They would have approached that fire differently if they had known.
