Turmoil for Fire 12

Prosecutor's office: 'There is no playbook on this'

In the past week, Fire District 12 has lost insurance coverage, been declared a disaster area and saw all three of its commissioners resign.

Mason County Administrator Mark Neary said the May 17 disaster declaration was "unprecedented" for a fire district.

"I've done a lot of research and I've been unable to find this happening anywhere else," Neary told commissioners. "We are in uncharted territory," he said.

Residents of the district, which covers western Mason County, including Matlock and some areas of eastern Grays Harbor County, should see no change in emergency response.
