Arlington Hts. firefighters feed the holiday spirit

Arlington Heights firefighters pulled up at a dozen different homes on Friday, but not to fight fires. Instead, they came loaded with holiday meals, with all the fixings. For the 17th year, members of the Arlington Heights Firefighters' Association collected donations from its members and administrators in order to make it a special holiday for needy families. This year, their combined donations added up to $900, or enough to feed 12 families, said Lt. Pete Ahlman, who coordinated the effort.
