We're going to have some very special guests in Owensboro this evening.  The Chicago Fire Department's "Ignite the Spirit" bike ride will be making a pit stop in town.

Twenty firefighters will roll into town this evening.  They are riding over 450 miles to raise money for cancer research and bring awareness to the disease.  The six-day ride began on Sunday, the 24th and will eventually wrap up in Nashville.  And Owensboro is on the route!

The Owensboro Fire Department has plans to greet and escort the riders into Owensboro.  Their exact arrival time is TBA, but riders are expected sometime this afternoon.
