Bennington fire department merger?

Posted: Updated:
BENNINGTON, Vt. -

A fire department merger could be in the works in Bennington.

The town's Rural Fire Department has come under fire in recent years. In the past six years, firefighters have been charged with embezzlement and sexual assault. And 16 volunteers were recently suspended for the infamous "Mudders Day" event, where a car was driven through a fire.

Now, the town select board wants to know how much the town could save if the department merged with the town-run Bennington Fire Department.
