Firefighters compete in hose cart races

A Prescott Nantional Forest fire crew hauls their hosecart during the annual hose cart races on Cortez Street in downtown Prescott Sunday, July 2. The annual event dates back to possibly the late 1800's or early 1900's when Prescott had a volunteer fire department that consisted of the Toughs, Dudes and Mechanics.  (Les Stukenberg/Courier)
