Local firefighters geared up for the fight this Saturday at Centennial Park. The event was hosted by the Peru Fire Department and 26 firefighters and emergency responders signed up to complete from the Peru, La Salle, Spring Valley, Dalzell, McNabb, Sandwich, Lisle-Woodridge, Fox Valley and Tonica fire departments.

Each entrant paid a $20 fee to compete. All proceeds go to support Peru firefighter Gary Eccle's cancer treatments. The department also sold T-shirts and raffled a wooden lawn chair. The 26 contenders battled each other with the help of two teammates. There will be awards for the top three teams and a first-eliminated trophy. The winning team's name is placed on a trophy and kept at the Peru Fire Station.

Winners were: First place, Dan Francisco of Tonica Fire Department; Second place, Fred Fellela of Fox Falley Fire Department; Third place, Ryan Rynkewicz of Peru Fire Department.
