Firefighters Add Take Out Service to Summerfest Chicken Dinner

This year, diners can call ahead at 734-531-8404 and pick up the food in the Benny's Bakery driveway off Michigan Avenue.

Instead of fighting fire, the  will use it to satisfy the tummies and taste buds of more than 1,000 people at Summerfest Saturday.

After a pancake breakfast at the Saline Fire Department from 8-10 a.m., the fire department invites the public to the annual Saline Area Fire Department "Firehouse Chicken" broil.

The event takes place from 11:30 a.m until 6 p.m. (or until the chicken is gone) Saturday, Aug. 11, at the South Ann Arbor Street parking lot during Saline Summerfest. 

Deputy Chief Charles Schaible built a portable grill that the department will use at the event.

Proceeds go to the Friends of the Saline Area Fire Department, which is raising money toward the purchase of a new all-terrain-vehicle for the department.

The dinner, which costs $8, includes a grilled half chicken, radishes, coleslaw, a dinner roll and a bag of chips.
