Minnesota Firefighters Fight Fire in Drag (Video)

SEDAN, Minn. – A couple of well-dressed volunteer firefighters from central Minnesota are causing quite a stir online. The pair helped put out a fire at a St. Patrick’s Day parade, but it’s what they were wearing that’s getting noticed. In a small town like Sedan, neighbors need to look out for one another — but Ted Aubart and Ben Terhaar are more than next-door neighbors and volunteer firefighters.
