DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - More than 30 teams from fire service, law enforcement and other public agencies around Iowa are dishing out some tasty chili.
The state Fire Marshal's Office is encouraging participants to fire up their crockpots Thursday for the Firehouse Chili Cook-off at the Iowa State Capitol.
The event is part of the annual Firefighter Day on the Hill, when lawmakers recognize the importance of Iowa firefighters.
This is the second year the state Fire Marshal's Office is hosting the competition.
As a tribute to fire service, Honor Guard from the Indianola Fire Department and the Iowa State Patrol will stand vigil Thursday over a piece of steel from the World Trade Center. The remnant will be on display on the first floor rotunda.
