Claremont Fire Department has gone bio fuel using wood pellets to heat their fire station and supply the firehouse with hot water. Fire Chief Rick Bergeron says the fire department applied for and received a grant from the Public Utilities Commission that paid 80% of the converting their oil system to a wood pellet boiler. This is the first winter the pellet boiler will be in use and the oil furnace will be a backup in case of extremely cold weather. The building originally was heated by coal, before the city converted it to oil in the 1950′s.
