Bismarck Fire Department escorts fifth-grader to school

BISMARCK, N.D. - It was a fun start to the school day for one fifth-grader at Highland Acres Friday morning. Reagen Fode is the winner of the Bismarck Fire Department's poster contest.

Firefighters from Station 3 took her in their truck to school. When they showed up with the lights and sirens on, Fode's friends were waiting for her. She told us on the ride over how she came up with her poster idea.

“I decided that I would do all the places that a fire could happen, and of course there are a lot more places, but I just did all the common places,” Fode said.

Firefighters returned Reagen's poster to her in a frame along with a first-place ribbon. The contest was held this year for all third, fourth and fifth graders.
