Lostant residents and guests stayed cool in the afternoon heat on Saturday by sitting in the shade of canopy tents and enjoying the spray coming off the fire departments’ water fights.
The fights began at 10 a.m. and continued until almost 2 p.m.
“If you get enough teams it’ll be on for hours,” said Rich Croissant, assistant fire chief from Dalzell Fire Department. “It’s a good time.”
Ten area departments participated in the event, but the top four teams all came from Tonica.
First place was Kurt Keutzer’s team; second place was Brad Keutzer’s team; third place was Dan Francisco’s team; and fourth place was Derek Keutzer’s team. Other departments that participated included Granville, Lostant, Dalzell, McNabb, Magnolia, Spring Valley, Wenona, Leonore andReading.
