Fire Department Prepares For Halloween

Posted: Updated:

Halloween is just a few days away, but the Burlington Fire Department is gearing up for their annual haunted house. And they're not just there to give you a scare, they're hosting this event for a good cause.

Fire firefighters are usually known for putting out fires and keeping people safe, but during this time of year, they like to give people a little spook. This is the sixth year in a row that the Burlington Fire Department is hosting a haunted house. And while they still have all of your traditional scary items inside, it changes every year.

"We like to change it up so that people don't expect the same thing. I know we've had people in the past say "oh, we're in this room, now there's going to be this and then they go through it and it scares the daylights out of them. And, they don't expect it at all," says Fire Chief Karter Lesmann.

As you walk inside, there are a total of ten creepy rooms, all tailored with a specific idea in mind.

I won't give too much away, because there would be no fun in that, but as you make your way through the halls, you'll run into the meat locker, some cages, and the electric chair. And, of course my personal favorite, the clowns!

"There are always a few people that get scared a little easier. And, we tend to throw things up a little bit. Everybody in the haunted house; the workers, we all have communication with each other on radio. So, we'll make sure that the big screamers get a little more for their money," says Lesmann.

But, sometimes they don't stop after you exit the haunted house.

"We'll follow them outside and continue to scare them until they've hand enough," says Lesmann.

The haunted house kicks off tomorrow night at 7 p.m. and runs until midnight. And, it will be open this weekend along with Halloween night.

Admission is $7.00, or  $6.00 if you bring a nonperishable canned item to donate to the Burlington Food pantry.
