Rankin Volunteer Firefighters ignite taste buds

Posted: Updated:
FLOWOOD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Volunteer firefighters give their time to put out flames, but Saturday they ignited taste buds.

Nine teams, many of them volunteer firefighters, competed in a Chili Cook-Off in Flowood.

All the proceeds will benefit each Rankin County volunteer fire department.

Folks lined up to sample the chili dishes then voted on their favorite.

The very excited Pelahatchie Volunteer Fire Department took home top honors and a paddle to stir their next batch of chili.

The cook-off was hosted by the Rankin County Chamber of Commerce as a Leadership Rankin project.
