A brief and perhaps odd article appeared in the Southtown Star about the Homewood Acres VFD.

Homewood Acres a fire department in name only, but officials hope to change

If there’s a fire in the tiny, unincorporated community of Homewood Acres, no one counts on the Homewood Acres Volunteer Fire Department for help.

It’s been several years since the single-station company has been able to respond to a fire in the one-square-mile area nestled between Country Club Hills and Homewood. Some of its firefighters are not state-certified, the department itself lacks certification from the Illinois State Fire Marshal, and it is caught in an ugly political brawl between the department’s former and current leadership.
