From "fun" to fun for the kids

One year old Nevaeha Rieder (cq), center, of Menasha was quick out of the gate at the Huggies Baby Derby at the Miller Kids Expo at the former Springz building in Grand Chute, Wis., Saturday May 17, 2008. Rieder won the race decidedly. Her mother, Susan, was awarded a baby sized ball cap and a coupon for free diapers.

What started as a "Kids Expo" turned into a bonanza for kids of all ages who ever dreamed of being a firefighter and driving the big red trucks.

A few hours after the children's fair began, the fire alarms sounded, later determined to be triggered by an electrical fire in the building's mechanical room. The much of the local fire department was already there and evacuated the building.

When supporting units showed up, most kids welcomed the big trucks and loud sirens. Others were a little disappointed to leave earlier than anticipated.
