Firefighters find themselves in a parade

When the contract Expeditors firefighting group of Native Americans from Montana was leaving the Scotchman Fire on July 4, they arrived right in time to be part of the annual Fourth of July Parade in the town of Washington, according to local resident Wil Chambers. Town revelers gave the firefighters a continuous ovation as they marched and there were few dry eyes, Chambers said.
