Residents in Burbank and Glendale will have a chance to mingle with their local firefighters on Saturday when each city’s fire department will open its doors for Fire Service Day.

Held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., both cities will hold open houses at their respective fire headquarters — in Burbank, at 200 N. Third St. and, in Glendale, at 421 Oak St. The events are free and open to the public.

Each department will conduct live demonstrations by firefighters as well as serve free food and offer activities for children.
