Frankfort, IL – For the second time in less than a month, residents of Frankfort in Will County are left with unanswered questions as Fire Station 74 becomes unmanned once more. This unsettling repeat incident, first occurring on February 28, has sparked concerns over public safety and administrative decisions within the community.
