An official from the Indiana Burn camp received a check for more than $2,000 from the Wabash Fire Department on Friday, Jan. 6.

He and Firefighter/Paramedic Dennis Vigar began the event on their own in 2012 and it has grown to now include representatives from other local fire departments, as well as members of the public.
