WAYNESBORO, Va.--- A volunteer fire department is preparing for its biggest fundraiser of the year.

The Dooms Fire Company annual carnival will be held this week.

Dooms Fire Chief Mike Fisher said it is tough to run a volunteer fire company because taxpayers money only helps so much.

He said the money from the event will help pay for recently used equipment and new equipment. It will also pay for the cost for running the equipment.

"It's really hard when fuel goes up to $4.20 a gallon, it hurts us real hard [especially] when fuel went up the first part of this year. I surpassed my six months budget, right there in that shot," Fisher said.

The event will run from June 12 to June 15 at Constitution Park in Waynesboro.
