Halloween Fire Safety
Fire Service Instructor Stephen MacVicar

IMG00068-20111027-1238.jpgThe Cape Breton Regional Fire Service put on a disturbing demonstration at the Grand Lake Fire Station today.

Fire fighters had purchased a few Halloween costumes at local stores and earlier this afternoon, they tried to set them on fire.It wasn't hard.

The Fire Service has learned that well over half the costumes being sold locally, are flammable.

As a result, they've issued a fire safety alert to warn people about the dangers.

Today's event  was put on by Fire Service Instructor Stephen MacVicar, with the help of Scotchtown fire fighter Jennifer MacKinnon.

Here's part of that demonstration.
