(JACKSON CO.) - When it comes to purchasing equipment to fight fires, $5,000 may not seem like a lot of money.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources Forestry Division awarded Owen-Salt Creek a $5,000 volunteer fire assistance grant from the state through the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service.
