The Minot Fire Department just got bigger.
For many months the department has been short staffed eleven members, but now that’s down to only three.
The department graduated eight new recruits and they’re ready to battle the hot summer months.
Battalion Chief Lonnie Sather says this will relieve the current staff whose had to put in a lot of overtime to protect the city.
The Minot Fire Department is still looking for three members in order to be fully staffed.
