TORRANCE COUNTY, N.M. — These days, people who live in the northwest corner of Torrance County who experience a fire and call 911 for help may find themselves less than satisfied - maybe even devastated - by the response.

Fire District 2's only two certified firefighters have recently quit or been fired, leaving the area west and immediately southwest of Moriarty without an effective fire response team.
