Some like it hot

Irmo Fire wins second in Town Chili Cookoff

Irmo Fire Marshal Brian Haley cooked up and served a piping hot pot of his very own “Tex’s not so Texas Chili” at the Town Chili Cookoff held Saturday, January 28 in the Community Park of Irmo. This was a fundraising event hosted by the Town of Irmo benefiting the American Kidney Foundation.

It was an Irmo Fire vs Irmo Police as the Irmo Police Department participated in the cookoff as well and in the end, Irmo PD’s chili just couldn’t compete with the Fire Marshal’s. “Tex’s not so Texas Chili” was favored over Irmo PD’s “Hot Pursuit Chili”, and was awarded 2nd best overall in the cookoff.
