11/04/09 91 W - + 13 - 14 Midway Fire Department in Drexel?

Burke County readers, have you heard of a Midway Fire Department, organized in 1961? They were formed to serve the rural areas outside the town of Drexel. They elected directors and officers in February 1961, with W. P. "Pete" Ballew as Fire Chief and Harold Pruett as Asst. Chief. The impetius for organization was the town announcing that they would discontinue answering fire calls outside of town. Nothing found in the state corporations database. Were they a precursor to Triple Community FD, who where incorporated January 1962?
