About Our Company

The Community Fire Company of Rising Sun, Incorporated, is said to have been "Born of Ashes" during the summer of 1921. On June 13, 1921, a fire erupted from ignited gasoline vapors in an alley between a Methodist church and a storage garage while a gasoline tank truck was filling an underground tank. The fire involved the tank truck and the nearby buildings in town, spreading beyond control by the time Rising Sun's apparatus arrived to the scene, among them a hose cart, chemical extinguishers, and two wheeled 40 gallon extinguishers.
