MADISON (WKOW) -- Some Madison firefighters took to the ice today for the Fire on Ice hockey tournament at the Madison Ice Arena.
The event is hosting eight firefighter hockey teams in total from the Midwest.
Proceeds from the tournament are going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation to help a Madison-area boy realize his wish of visiting the set of the TV show "Mythbusters."
According to Madison Fire Department driver Matthew Thomas, MFD the tournament also helps build camaraderie in the fire community.
"It's always great to get out and get together with other firefighters from across the nation ... so they get to run out there, run off some energy and have good competitive hockey," Thomas said.
The Fire on Ice tournament concludes Sunday afternoon.
