ISLAND CITY Second-graders are full of questions. Especially if the subject is fighting fires, fire trucks and firefighters.

Johanna Dowlers Island City class of second-graders had questions and lots of answers when they visited the volunteer department Friday afternoon.

How much does that truck weigh? About 56,000 pounds when filled with water.

Do you burn houses down? Yes, for training sometimes. I saw you!

What does the dog do? Duke the Dalmatian is the departments mascot, who helps teach children what to do when theres a fire.

You help get cats out of trees. Sometimes, but cats are getting smarter and are learning how to do it themselves.

The students all knew what to do if there was smoke in their homes. They shouted, Stop, drop and roll!

And then they got to climb into the fire engines, check out the computer dispatch center and see firefighter Chandra Turner dressed in her turn-outs and listen to her breathing apparatus.

As the visit ended, there were smiles all around, students and firefighters alike.
