Firefighters offered a live fire demo and a chance to climb on their trucks.

Langley City Fire Rescue held a Trick or Treat Open House on Oct. 26.

Dozens of families, mostly with young children, turned out to see the trucks and the live fire demonstrations.

Sparky the Fire Dog was on hand, and kids got to try on some firefighter turnout gear, don helmets, and climb on new and historic fire trucks.

The firefighters did a demonstration including torching a car and dousing the flames.
