Last month, Franklinville Fire & Rescue responded to a building collapse at the Franklinville United Methodist Church. Engine 8 arrived to find that the building had partially collapsed. Unfortunately, the damage was unrepairable, and portions of the building had to be torn down for safety reasons. Firefighters were on scene during the demolition to assist with crowd control overall scene safety, as well as assisting with salvaging as much history as possible, including the church bell.
