The Firefighter’s Association of Nevada City is hosting a spaghetti dinner fundraiser from 3 to 8 p.m. today at the fire station on 201 Providence Mine Road in Nevada City.

The event is supposed to raise funds to cover costs associated with training firefighters and obtaining necessary equipment, said Nevada City Fire Chief Sam Goodspeed.

The firefighters will make the dinner, Goodspeed said. Ice cream and lemonade will be served as well, he added.

“I’m hoping we can serve 400 to 500 people,” Goodspeed said. “That would be very successful.”

Tickets to the event cost $10 for adults, and $5 for children. One can purchase tickets at the event. For more information, one can call the fire station at 265-2351 or visit the Web site
