AUBURN — The Auburn Fire Department will welcome local families to an open house from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 21, to teach fire safety and prevention practices. It will be held at Central Station, 550 Minot Ave.

The event commemorates National Fire Safety Month. Participants will learn how to use a fire hose; have the opportunity to try on firefighter gear; and receive safety tips on “stop, drop and roll.”

Pizza and children’s activities will be provided. There will also be fire safety information and goodies available for children, along with a bounce house and a free raffle for door prizes.

Lewiston/Auburn 911 and the local chapter of the American Red Cross will be guests for the day.
