The state has kicked in $100,000 of the estimated $450,000 needed for the training building

ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY, N.Y. — St. Lawrence County's volunteer firefighters are a step closer to getting their new $450,000 fire training tower with the announcement of a $100,000 infusion from the state.
After being set ablaze more than 300 times over about 30 years, fire officials said they needed to replace the the George E. Brigg Fire Training Center in West Potsdam because it was no longer safe.
