HULEN, OK (KSWO) -The Hulen Volunteer Fire department hosted their annual Indian taco fundraiser today in hopes of getting much needed, new equipment.

These fire fighters rely solely on donations. Fire chief, Chris Carter says they're in the process of getting a new building, but they're still need fixtures and appliances. He says they're also in need of new equipment that is very expensive. 

They did not set a goal at how much they wanted to raise because anything helps. He says the community has always had their back and supported them.

"It feels great, like I said before, without the communities help, we have nothing," said Carter. "We are here to provide a service and protect these people out here. We do what we can to give to them and it really means a lot to us when they give back as well."

Carter said they had so many people show up for the fundraiser, they ran out of food within an hour and a half.
