The Merrill Fire Department is preparing to auction off a number of items this weekend. This after their move from the old station to the new one left them with a bit of clearing out to do.
"We have some small firefighter equipment, like firefighting ladders and we have some pipe poles and axes and stuff of that nature," Merrill Fire Chief Dave Savone explained.
While you can bid on some fun items, like a firefighter jacket or boots, there are some practical items you can bid on as well. Items like these include a refrigerator, stove, washer and dryer, pots and pans and a number of other household items.
Fire Chief Savone says no matter what you're in the market for, there truly is something for everyone.
"We're going to have the homeowner that wants that washer and dryer. Then, for the fire fighting gear, we're hoping to get some firefighter buff or collectors that might need that one piece for their collection to make it perfect."
All the money raised from the auction will go directly back to the City of Merrill to help the city pay for the new supplies they purchased for the fire department.
"We felt it's the best way to get the best value for the city, to hold an auction to sell off that access equipment," Fire Chief Savone told NewsChannel 7.
The auction will be held Saturday, May 31st at the old Merrill fire Station located at 701 East 1st St. The public is invited to come check the items out beginning at 8:00 AM. Bidding will start at 10:00 AM.
