Steam rise from the pots as Station 109 Macon-Bibb County firefighters and four other stations fried 200 turkeys Thanksgiving morning. They charged $35 for each bird and gave the proceeds to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Captain Michael Johstono urges people to put their orders in early next year if they would like to buy one. This is the seventh year the fire department has fried turkeys for the public. Last year firefighters raised about $3500 for the MDA.
