CACHE, OK (KSWO) - To raise money to update their fire trucks, Cache Volunteer Fire Department hosted an Indian taco lunch on Saturday. This is the second year of hosting this fundraiser.

The department is hoping to raise $10,000 to buy equipment to help them when battling structure fires, especially when they have to do in the building to save lives.

Landon Cochrane with the department says with state budget cuts this year, the funding to keep their supplies updated isn't always there.

"If we don't have the proper equipment here at our station, we have to wait for resources to come from other departments,” said Cochrane. “We try to be self-sufficient here in Cache, to be the first on scene, and to have everything we need when we get there."

Last year they raised $6,500 to update their equipment. Cochrane says they are hoping to break their record from last year, one taco and donation at a time.
