GREENWOOD - One of the major problems plaguing the Greenwood Volunteer Fire Department is a lack of space. They have so outgrown their current building they have to park their trucks in volunteers' yards.

"We are right in the middle of a neighborhood, so we are worried about running over kids, cars getting in the way that's why we really want to move out to 1379," Fire Fighter Wayne Dizmang said.

The community of Greenwood has grown a lot since 1984, when the current volunteer fire station was built.  The donated land sits off FM 13-79 for the new station, but in order to construct the facility they need the communities support.

"We really hope we can apply for some grants, but we first have to get some donations to start the process. We want this to be something the community can be proud of," Fire Chief Leland Hart said.

They hope to start construction in the next year but it will depend on donations.
