A local volunteer fire department is looking for a few good men and women, and they've got a pretty good recruiting incentive - a free place to live.
It's wildfire season and volunteers are hard to come by.
The Brazos County Precinct 4 Department believes this could help them beef up staff at a critical time.
Precinct Four Chief Joe Ondrasek came up with the newest plan - if you sign up to be a volunteer fire fighter, provided there's space, they'll give you a place to live for free.
It's mutually beneficial, since the ire department needs volunteers and college students need to save money.
It's a very popular program. There are seven dorms and all seven are consistently full.
In return for the rent-free living, the volunteers have to help clean and do work around the station.
