DRY PRONG (KALB News Channel 5) -- Firefighters are used to helping other. But, on Saturday, it was them who got the help.

It was all a part of "Hook and Ladder Day."

The event is a barbeque fundraiser to support Grant Parish Fire District 3 - a volunteer station.

There was a kids day in the park, a bake sale and door prizes.

Firefighters say the support is needed. They cover a large area and the money really helps.

"We have a good time," said Tony Bennett, district fire chief. "We spent all day up here with the guys yesterday cooking everything. We are here today to see the community and talk to the people. People come out and support us, we are all volunteers."

The fire department hoped to raise about $4,000.
