The Ellsworth and Prescott fire departments were the recent recipients of fire boats, thanks to federal grants. Pierce County Sheriff Nancy Hove, whose department applied for the grants, said the boats will be used for fires along the river and wherever else needed. She added each department is responsible for the staffing and maintenance of the boats. Hove is pictured between Prescott Fire Chief Bill Dravis (left) and Ellsworth Fire Chief Brent Langer (right).
