A team of local fire fighters placed high in a grueling 12 mile obstacle course at Northstar Resort outside of Truckee on September 22. A team of five fire fighters from the Consolidated Fire Department recently participated in the Tough Mudder Competition.
Consolidated Battalion Chief Jerry Funk said the team completed the grueling course in 2 hours and 35 minutes.
Captain Funk praised the teams effort and shared that they were recently notified that they are one of the strongest teams in the world.
The competition is a fund raiser for the Wounded Warrior program. Captain Funk said three million dollars has been raised for the program.
