Firefighters compete at annual barrel fight (PHOTOS)

LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – Several firefighters wrangled hoses Friday evening, but they weren’t fighting a fire – they were fighting a barrel.

Firefighters from across the area formed several teams at the Mountain Lake Fire Company’s annual Barrel Fight competition. They used the force of the water to push the barrel across a cable strung in the air in a sort of tug-of-war game.

During the competition, several firefighters had to leave to respond to a house fire in Allamuchy Township.

The Blairstown Hose Company #1 won the men’s championship trophy and the Good Will Fire Company #1 won the women’s trophy for the second straight year.

The winners get to keep the trophy until next year’s games.
