A Fire Museum is coming to the area thanks to hard work from a group of people looking to honor local fire men and women.

The former Fire Station 4 in Syracuse will be used for the Syracuse and Onondaga County Fire Museum. Half the building was originally built back in the 1800s and now a group is looking to collect artifacts to honor those who have saved lives in Central New York.

"We want kids and adults alike to come in, pick up a fire extinguisher, pick up a fire axe, touch and feel what's here, see what firefighting was like back in the day as opposed to today's era,” said James Enni with the museum. “We just want it to be a fun place for people of all ages to come."

An old fire truck has already been donated to the museum.

Organizers are also raising money to make the entire building ADA acceptable.
