(Lake Norden, SD) — The Lake Norden emergency building is being deemed a total loss after a fire destroyed the fire department building and most of the equipment and vehicles inside. The call came in at about 5:30 Wednesday morning when volunteer firefighters from Lake Norden couldn’t even fight their own fire, because they couldn’t get to their trucks. Numerous firefighters from surrounding towns, like Hayti, Estelline, Badger, Castlewood and even Watertown were called in to help knock down the flames. It’s a devastating loss to the community that officials say could take months to recover and get back in operation.
