Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - A few local heroes spent the morning playing "Santa Claus". Fargo Firefighters have been dropping off Christmas presents at MeritCare for over 15 years.

Firefighters buy gifts from the group’s charity fund. They receive a list of how many boys and girls are hospitalized and a nurse helps them pick things the youngsters would like.

“We feel that it's our job to serve the citizens of Fargo and this is just something extra we can do to make their day a little bit better.”

The firefighters were busy today. The group was seen putting out a house fire later in the afternoon.
