LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — This week is national Fire Prevention Week. The Lafayette and West Lafayette Fire Departments will be offering a free public performance of their annual "Fire Prevention Show."

The show is at 6 p.m. at Jefferson High School in the Rohrman Performing Arts Auditorium and will last about an hour.

Children will be able to meet characters like Sparky the Fire Dog. Firefighters and police officers will be there to teach fire safety to children.

Deputy Chief from Lafayette Fire Department, Steve Butram, said this show is fun for children, and they will walk away with valuable lessons in safety.

"While we're waiting for the show to start, you'll see all the kids and they're all bouncing up and down in the seat and you hear the seats squeaking and you can just feel the enthusiasm in the auditorium before the show starts and even during the show," said Butram.
