Seaside Fire and Rescue's "Fire Up" barbecue drew a crowd Saturday — requiring a second trip to the supermarket for more chicken after the first batch sold out. Hundreds of residents shared the fun with firefighters and volunteers at the event, sponsored by the Seaside Fire Association. 

The proceeds will be used to to stay current with modern lifesaving skills, equipment and training.

Diners enjoyed barbecued chicken, corn on the cob, coleslaw, rolls and watermelon, which are also available for takeout orders.

Firefighting rigs are on display and "Old MAC," the 1935 antique fire truck, on view downtown during the Wheels and Waves Car Show. Raffle winners took home an iPad, wide-screen TV and much more — with proceeds all to a great cause.
