The fire department in the Madison County town of Frankton is getting some needed financial help, but not from local government.

Churches and civic groups have pledged more than $21,000 in donations over the past month after Frankton Fire Chief Rob Amick went public with his volunteer fire department's dire budget crisis.

Amick says Frankton Christian Church plans to present the department with a check for $10,000 Friday, and the local Lions Club is planning to donate $7,000. One individual had promised $3,500.

Amick's department runs on a budget of $62,000 per year to serve the town of Frankton and two townships. Frankton is about 35 miles northeast of Indianapolis.
