A Nokomis volunteer firefighter works a mobile home fire at 116 Ruby Ave. Wednesday, July 11, 2007. The department sent 26 firefighters, two engines, a tanker and a ladder truck to the blaze which is currently being ruled arson; no one was injured. Set up in the 1950s and sustained by dues and donations, Nokomis' fire department might soon be absorbed by the fire department of Sarasota County because of population growth.
