SKELLYTOWN, TX (KFDA) - While battling the Dumas Complex Fire this week, the Skellytown Volunteer Fire Department suffered a loss in their equipment.

One of their primary response trucks was involved in an accident. Without a truck to replace this one with, the department says it is taking a huge risk on being able to protect their citizens and surrounding areas.

The department is reaching out to the public for help funding a new truck. Their goal is to reach $10,000. So far, $340 has been donated.
