Fire museum to hold fish fry Friday

The West End Hose Co. No. 3 Fire Museum in Biloxi will hold a fish fry Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to raise funds for the museum.

The fish fry will be held at the museum, which is a former fire house at 1046 Howard Ave. The $6 fish plates also feature potato salad, baked beans and bread. Drinks and desserts also are available. Although fish plates cannot be delivered, take-out orders can be arranged by calling 435-6119 on Friday between 8 and 10 a.m.; no deliveries will be available

A raffle for a Big Green Egg Grill will be conducted at 1 p.m.

“We’ll have a tent set up outside the museum, and tables and chairs will be set up from the pumper hall all the way to the ramp outside,” said Joe Boney, a battalion chief in the Biloxi Fire Department, and a member of the museum board. Parking will be available in the Lopez-Quave Public Safety Center lot, directly across from the fire museum.
