The pancakes have been eaten and the numbers are in for attendance at the annual Washington Fire Department Pancake Dinner. During the lunch and dinner, the department served about 1,900 people. It’s the last time that the fundraiser will be held in the current building. At this time next year, the new Washington Fire Station will be complete. The City is constructing a new station just south of the current building and it will have additional space for trucks and equipment, and thousands of pancakes once each year. The current fire station will be refurbished to create more room for City Hall and the police department.
