FORTSON, GA (WTVM) -  A volunteer fire department is raising funds to stay in operation.

The Antioch Volunteer Fire Department in Fortson, Georgia invited folks out Sunday for a BBQ. They offered $8 plates for drive thru and take out.

News Leader Nine was there and spoke with the head of the fundraiser, Tommy McKenzie, who said, "Basically we're just selling Bar-b-Que to raise funds for the general operation of the fire department."

If you missed out on barbeque, don't worry, the fire department does this fundraiser seven times per year.
