Fire Department warns of scam

The Centralia-Peosta Fire Department is warning area residents of a scam where an entity is selling merchandise in the fire department’s name.

“Please know that we are not affiliated with this company and are not selling t-shirts to the public at this time,” a Facebook post reads.

It is unclear if this fraud is impacting more area fire departments, but Bernard Fire and Rescue has also warned of a similar merchandising scam hitting its area.
