Firefighters In Drag Put Out Fire At Holiday Parade
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene with a story about never being off duty. In Padua, Minnesota, the annual St. Patrick's Day parade was about to get underway when a pickup truck burst into flames. Luckily, two firefighters were right nearby. They were in the parade dressed in drag. But they put out that fire. You can see it in the news footage - two guys in full-length tropical colored gowns clutching a fire hose while periodically adjusting their dress straps. It's MORNING EDITION.
