Fire Department Has Busy New Year

Looking Through Our History

The La Feria Newspaper is celebrating its 100th year anniversary and to commemorate the occasion we are digging deep into our archives each week to bring you images and stories from our paper’s colorful past history.

This piece below is transcribed from our
January 8, 1948 edition.

The La Feria Fire Department had a busy New Year. Blazing palm trees on South Parker Road New Year’s Eve was responsible for one call and a burning truck on the highway New Year’s Day required aid from the department. Little damage resulted from either blaze.
