St. Petersburg Fire & Rescue Haunted House an Overwhelming Success

More than 1,300 frightened people can’t be wrong. That’s how many people made their way through this multi-roomed haunted firehouse. 200-300 more were too frightened to make their way through, but enjoyed hot dogs, cokes, popcorn and Halloween candy.

Expecting sick, twisted creatures and other mayhem in this trip to purgatory that starts at one end of the haunted fire station and ends at the other. More than 40 formerly human volunteers worked their dark magic along with strobe lights, smoke machine and other effects to scare the local citizens.

Firefighters collected non-perishable foods for local food banks and handed out tons of Fire Prevention goodies. “It’s just another way to reach out the community in a positive way” stated head goblin Firefighter Glenn Hadley, who was in charge of this year’s event.
