The Akron Fire Department gave kids a day they will never forget Thursday. They hosted an event called Fire Truck Day and the guests of honor were children from Akron Children's Burn Camp, along with children who are amputees. About a dozen fire units from all over the region converged on Portage Lakes Park to form a giant rain tunnel and the highly anticipated foam pit. One of the special guests was 13-year-old Mason Morris. Morris suffered severe burns over 85% of his body after a cup of gas ignited last summer while he and his father Aaron were killing weeds in the lawn.
