Firefighters in Drag Battle Truck Blaze along St. Patty’s Day Parade Route!

Sauk Center MN -Volunteer Firefighters from Sedan Minnesota were not prepared to work on Saint Patrick’s Day last weekend, they were involved in a holiday parade and fundraiser. But when a truck engine caught fire along the route and that fire threatened other vehicles, they sprung into action.

The only problem was, they were a little over dressed for the occasion. See the video posted by local amateur videographer Paul Streitz.

The author of the video describes the scene on his You Tube Channel.

“Moments before the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the small town of Padua, Minnesota, was about to begin, a truck fire broke out at the end of the block. Fortunately, the all-volunteer firefighting crew from nearby Sedan, Minnesota, was on hand to celebrate their 125th anniversary and to raise money to pay for their new fire hall and truck; one of their members was set to drive the city’s new fire truck in the parade and the others were on a float dressed in drag to entertain the crowd.”

The local fire department was too far away to help and the need  was urgent. No one is reported to have been injured in the fire, not even a broken nail.
