GOSNELL, AR (KAIT) - The Gosnell Fire Department got a big surprise from a local business.
Lowe's renovated the inside of their fire station for free.
Gosnell Assistant Police Chief Andrew Wyles said the fire station is 25-years-old and needed some upgrades.
Lowe's donated a countertop, gas stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, paint, and labor to provide the department a place to operate out of during severe weather.
"I really appreciate what Lowe's is doing," Wyles said. "Not just for us. Like I said they'll go out, I mean they can go out anywhere and donate stuff to the schools. I think Captain Grissom said they'll be donating benches sometime. I'm not sure. But I think it's great what they're doing. They're kind of giving back to the community."
There is still work to be done at the station.
They are planning to add a shower, washer, and dryer.
