The Eagle River Area Fire department is planning a second full service fire station to serve the municipalities of Eagle River and the towns of Cloverland, Lincoln, and Washington and received support for borrowing $225,000 to finish a recently built facility.

In a presentation to the Eagle River city council, fire department chairman Steve Burr indicated they received a donation of five acres from the town of Washington on Range Line Road where they have a building originally planned for storage of equipment and training. “We would like to upgrade it to a full service fire station but we need to fininsh it off inside,” Burr told the council. “We're asking for joint loan support from our member municipalities.”
