PADUA, Minn. — It seems dresses and heels did nothing to keep two firefighters from doing their job.

Just as the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Padua, Minnesota was about to begin, a truck fire broke out.

Luckily, an all-volunteer firefighting crew from Sedan, Minnesota were on a nearby float, dressed up in drag to help raise money to pay for their new fire hall and truck.

Still in dresses, they were able to grab equipment and knock the fire down in just a couple minutes.
