Main Street (currently the Municipal board room & Police Department).A hand pumper was brought by train in 1920 from Battle Creek, Michigan. This pumper is now stored at the Lena Museum. The first Model T fire truck was purchased in 1927. In 1934 & 1952 other fire trucks was purchased to serve the needs of the village and in 1952 the Lena Volunteer Fire Department extended services to Towns of Spruce, Stiles, Lena and Little River.
