Firefighters help boy celebrate his birthday

It's not every year a parade through town is held in your honor.

LACEYVILLE, Pa. — It's just one of many examples of area first responders turning out to brighten someone's birthday. 

Firefighters from Meshoppen turned out to help celebrate Elijah Rought's fifth birthday with a parade through downtown Laceyville. 

Elijah wasn't able to have a traditional birthday party because of social distancing requirements. 

So this turnout Tuesday in Wyoming County was the next best thing.

The crew even gave Elijah a fireman's helmet and a goodie bag filled with fire safety tips.
