The Clayton Fire Company will be conducting its annual open house on Sunday, Oct. 6.

This year's event will be held at the parking lot of Metal Masters at 100 Industrial Blvd. in Clayton from 1 to 4 p.m.

The event this year has been moved to Metal Masters parking lot as construction on the department's expansion was anticipated to begin about this time; the move does allow the fire company to expand its inventory and provide more displays.

The open house will feature fire trucks, fire boats, as well as many other displays and food. The event will also mark the beginning of Fire Prevention Week.

You do not need to live in Clayton to enjoy this family-friendly event.

The following week several events are planned including fire prevention activities so talk to your kids. If you need ma smoke detector for your home, they will be available at the open house; just as a Clayton Fire Company member.
