The Murrieta Fire Department is hosting an open house Saturday in conjunction with National Fire Prevention Week.
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12 at Fire Station No. 2, 40600 California Oaks Road.
Murrieta fire Chief Matt Shobert said the open house will be fun for all ages.
Guests can tour the station, check out fire engines, learn fire extinguisher safety and pick up fire safety informational material.
Free hot dogs will be given out and there will be a bounce house for kids.
The chief will also have his Dalmation, Butters, on hand to greet guests. Butters will also give a demonstration on how to "stop, drop and roll."
“We invite the public to come by,” Shobert said.
National Fire Prevention Week commemorates the great Chicago fire of 1871. This year’s theme is “Prevent Kitchen Fires.” To learn more, visit Fpw.org.
