What a treat for kids, parents and our firefighters tonight at Forbes Elementary School. Firefighters got a chance to show kids a bit of what they do as volunteers. But perhaps the best part is that the kids got up close and personal with the trucks and gear… and by the looks of it, we may have some junior firefighters in the making!

Penn Hills VFD 221, 222, 223, 225, and 227 all responded to a fire at a two story home on Westwood Road Friday evening and were on the scene for most of the night. All people appear to have made it out safely, but as you can see from the photos, not much was left of the house. (To see the photos larger just click on one and you’ll get a slide show)
