NEWRY — The Rumford Fire Department took home the title of “Masters of the Hose” in an annual competition that puts firefighters on skis.

Sunday River’s annual firefighters’ race Sunday featured teams of firefighters on a slalom course in full gear and gripping a fire hose. Rumford took top honors with a winning time of 40 seconds, followed by the Bethel Fire Department at 45 seconds.

The 28th annual firefighters’ race, like the skiing Santas event in December, raises money for the Sunday River Community Fund. The fund supports charitable organizations in neighboring communities.
