Pleasant Valley Two Rivers Volunteer Fire Department vehicles

Pleasant Valley-Two Rivers residents have voted to create a fire service area. It’s a milestone for people who live along Chena Hot Springs Road east of Fairbanks, where a string of arson attacks in 2021 inspired locals to organize a volunteer fire department. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, administrative steps need to be completed before fire service begins July first of next year.
