Yakima Firefighters Cook for a Cause

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA-- Wednesday night is the 18th annual Yakima Fire Department Spaghetti Feed at Fire Station 91.

The Yakima Fire Department and the Yakima Valley Red Cross put this event on every year.

Last year they raised $2,500 for the Red Cross and this year they hope to break that barrier.

Firefighters said this is also part of national fire safety week, this year they want to bring awareness to kitchen fires, which are the biggest cause of house fires.

They said this partnership is a natural fit with the Red Cross.

"They help out where we often leave off.  It's like people who have fires and they need help, the Red Cross steps up and helps out so it's just a fundraiser for them," said firefighter Nick Sloan.

The event runs from 4:00 – 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the fire station on North Front Street.

Dinner for adults is $7.50 and $5.00 for kids and seniors; dessert is an extra dollar.  All proceeds go to the Yakima Red Cross.

Fire fighters hope to see more than 600 people at the event.
