UKEE WASHINGTON: The Philadelphia Fire Department is celebrating 150 years. Eyewitness News was at the Fireman's Hall Museum today for the opening celebration. There were donations to a time capsule as well as a beautifully decorated and more than likely delicious cake to mark the occasion. Additional celebrations will be held throughout the year. The Department officially began its service to the city on March 15, 1871. We salute and thank them all past, present, and future.
