SUMMIT PARK, W.Va. (AP) - Residents of the Summit Park community in Harrison County are standing behind their volunteer fire department amid a state investigation.

The Summit Park Volunteer Fire Department voluntarily closed in February after the West Virginia Fire Commission began its probe. The commission is investigating whether the fire department is in compliance with state code.

Media outlets report that Summit Park residents voted overwhelmingly to keep the fire department open during a community meeting Saturday.

Also Saturday, Fire Chief Brenda Fragmin resigned. Assistant Chief Greg Cutright was named as her replacement.
