Over two-hundred snowed-in Minnesota teens were welcomed to the local firehouse to take prom photos, in a warm gesture that is sure to melt a few hearts.
The Forest Lake teens -caught in about two feet of snow and an oncoming blizzard- were invited to take their prom photos indoors at the Forest Lake Fire Station, where many students posed with fire trucks, helmets, and axes.
While the prom itself was canceled, the gesture was well-received by those who found out about it on social media, adorning FLFD with praise on their Facebook.
“Could not thank you guys enough for opening up the Fire House and risking your own safety by staying there so I, a swell as many [other] prom goers, could take pictures,” one student said. “Although [prom] was canceled, the pictures taken will last a lifetime.”
The Forest Lake Fire & Rescue reported that they were more than happy to run the event, which created a lasting impression for a group of students who wouldn’t let a little blizzard stop them.
