Mullins honored for service to fire department

During a recent meeting of the Cuba Fire Protection District Board of Directors, Don Mullins was recognized for 45 years of service to the district and the Cuba community.

Mullins, who became a Cuba fireman in 1974 and served as both a lieutenant and captain during his career, was presented with a silver axe by the department and board, along with a certificate of appreciation by the state fire marshal to mark his retirement.
