PLYMOUTH â€” A home scheduled to be demolished is providing a unique opportunity for area firefighters.
The Marshall County Health Department condemned a home at 4170 Lilac Road near Plymouth, according to Jerry Fussell of the Health Department, and rather than just tear it down, itâ€™s been offered to the LaPaz Fire Department to use for training.
â€ś(The house) is in a decaying state,â€ť explained Fussell. â€śWe cannot contact the owner anymore; we have no way to get in contact with them.â€ť

In the Councilâ€™s previous session earlier this month Kevin Chestnut - tax advisor for the North American branch of the German company - came before the board to ask for the extension of a tax abatement offered the company when it first considered where it was going to place its base of North American operations. In 2006, the Council voted Zentis a two-year abatement when the company had requested a five-year abatement for the project.
