Six fire departments were called into action in Skowhegan, Maine, to battle a blaze. And, not surprisingly, while fighting the fire, they got hungry.
That’s when the staff at a local pizza shop stepped up to help. Except there was a problem … Crews had to shut off power in the area in order to keep the firefighters and others nearby safe.
So instead of making pizza for the first responders, the staff at Al’s Pizza made sandwiches – over 100 of them – and delivered them to the front lines.
They used flashlights and cell phone lights to see, because that’s the only light they had.
They also emptied their bakery case, giving away all of the baked goods they had, everything free of charge as a gesture of appreciation.
Eventually, power was restored and Al’s Pizza is back to making their sandwiches and pizza – with the lights on. (WABI-TV)
