Car enthusiasts turned out to help raise money for firefighters.

Saturday was the Sixth Annual Car Show sponsored by the Washington Township Fire Department.  Fireman Jon Hittle says the crowd is smaller than last year but every little bit helps.

"We do pretty good with it. You know right now we’ve got about forty cars here. Last year it was a little bit more but it helps with the every day supplies we need to keep the fire department running."

The day included a raffle, door prizes and a DJ. MedFlight and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources along with Smokey the Bear were special guests.

"It’s nice to have them here in an atmosphere like this where nothing bad is happening and also as far as the ODNR and Smokey the Bear we like to have him out so he can talk to the kids and teach them about fire safety and stuff," said Hittle.

Plaques were given to the first one hundred vehicles and more than thirty trophies were awarded to top cars.
