DORCAS — The Dorcas Fire District invites the community to visit a haunted house beginning Oct. 25 at Fire Station 42.

The haunted house — featuring fire department volunteers and their children dressed in Halloween attire — will include spiders, clowns and a prison room. The attraction will also feature a cemetery with paranormal activity.    

It’s a scary setup, department volunteer Deb Winter said, adding that last year's haunted house may have been too spooky for some.

"Two people went home without their shoes," she said.

Proceeds will go toward refurbishing the department's brush fire truck, but the community’s enjoyment is the top priority, Fire Chief John Polinsky said.

"We don't have intentions to make money off of it; we do it so the kids have something to do," he said. "It is for the children and the families in the community." 

  Several businesses — including Lowe's Home Improvement Store and Sherwin-Williams, which donated construction materials — have sponsored the event. Winn-Dixie has donated cookies.
