Painting the town fire-engine red
Alexandria is going to be ablaze with firefighter action next weekend. The Alexandria Fire Department will host the 137th annual Minnesota State Fire Department Association (MSFDA) Conference June 14 through 16.
Alexandria Fire Chief Jeff Karrow said he anticipates 600 to 700 visitors will be in town shopping, staying at hotels and enjoying local restaurants.
"They love the Alex area," Karrow said. "Alexandria usually has one of the biggest, most successful conferences."
