Hundreds turn out to celebrate Fire Prevention Week.

Crookston Fire Hall held its annual open house on Saturday, Oct. 13 in celebration of National Fire Prevention Week. Hundreds of people, many of them kids, took advantage of the pleasant fall day to check out the equipment, watch fire extinguishing demos, ride in the aerial bucket, meet Sparky the Fire Dog, collect fire prevention information, register for door prizes, enter contests, spray a fire hose and enjoy a free meal.
