The Mayflower Volunteer Fire Department finally got several new improvements to the exterior of the building, allowing it to blend in with its surroundings.  The parking lot was also redone to repair the existing blacktop, which had begun to buckle under the weight of the fire trucks driving over it for so many years.

Fire 3-22-10. Firefighters with Pine Village and Mayflower fire departments responded Monday afternoon to a fire at 392 Sturgis Road. Mayflower Fire Chief Carl Rossini said at the scene that he was among the first firefighters to arrive and found half of the residence engulfed. The efforts of these and other firefighters kept the fire contained, but the residence was destroyed. One man lived in the residence, according to a family member, and he was not home when the fire started. This family member said that arrangements had been made for the man to have a place to stay.
