Nelson’s Fire Hall celebrates 100 years

The Nelson Fire Hall celebrated its 100th birthday with festivities so big that they spread out into the street

Smoke billowed from the fire hall as alarm bells rang and fire trucks filled a blocked off Ward street Saturday. But no one seemed concerned. In fact, everyone seemed to be having a great time.

The Nelson Fire Hall celebrated its 100th birthday with a barbeque, (billowing smoke), tours of the building and its equipment (including bell ringing) and the festivities were so big that they spread out into the streets.

Kids of all ages marveled at the history contained within the hall. Burgers and cake were served up by firemen happy to celebrate along with the community.

The celebratory open house goes until 3 p.m.
