Some Like it Hot, but Not These Firefighters

Gender Bendery

These mild-mannered Minnesotan firemen were 100% off-duty last weekend, appearing in Sauk Centre’s St. Patrick’s Day parade wearing dresses in order to raise money for charity (no, we don’t have any more details than that). This meant that when a truck fire started up just yards from where they were waiting to march off, instead of waiting for the nearest available fire department to travel the fifteen miles to get there, they got to work. From a safe distance where they wouldn’t be hindered by their lack of a firefighter’s normal safety equipment.

Showing once again that there’s nothing unmanly about appearing feminine.
