    Ron Serino at the “stairsteps” near Ashland, W.Va. This former strip mine has become a popular place for ATV-riders on the weekend. However, ATV fatalities continue to increase as the Northfork Volunteer Fire Department struggles to gain access and promptly evacuate the injured without a UTV. They have been washing four-wheelers for $3 each to raise money to purchase a UTV. The land (above) is a reclaimed mine and is still owned by the coal company who turns a blind eye to the drug use, alcohol abuse and “chaos” that occurs here on the weekends. Ron said he doubts they will ever pay attention unless there is a lawsuit filed against them. In the past, Ron and his fellow firefighters have carried injured riders out for miles to save their lives. This past Saturday, a rider died just yards from here.
