VIDEO/PHOTOS: Baltic firefighter Wayne Troyer held the fire hose in his right hand and placed his left on his co-worker's shoulder. The referee started the countdown. "Three!" Troyer looked up at the barrel. It was attached on a line that ran above him. Opposite his team were their opponents: three firefighters from the Winesburg Fire Department. "Two!" To his left, hundreds of spectators from communities in and around Holmes County watched from a nearby hill Saturday night as part of the East Holmes Firemen's Festival, adding more pressure to his first water barrel competition. "One!" A whistle sounded and Troyer placed both hands on the fire hose, supporting it for his team's point man who held the nozzle over his shoulder aiming it at the barrel.
