Levy firefighters sell fireworks to raise money

LEVY, SC (WTOC) - The Fourth of July is almost here and fireworks are always a big hit, especially right over the Talmadge Bridge, at the Levy Fire Department's fireworks stand.

It sounds like an odd pairing, firefighters and fireworks, but they have been doing for it years. The Levy Fire firefighters are volunteers and they say this is a great way to raise money for the fire station.

The Levy Volunteer Fire Department is a charter department so the firefighters own it and must raise money for themselves.
