Tulsa Fire Department is hosting a St. Patrick's Day open house as they continue their fundraising efforts for a fire museum.

The party goes from 2 to 6 p.m. at 1010 East 8th Street - in what used to be the 1931 Fire Alarm Building. Wear your green and come see historic displays of Tulsa's firefighting history.

There will be desserts and drinks - as firefighters hope to bring in the green to fund the purchase of the building that is currently owned by the American Lung Association.
