Halloween chills could equal Christmas morning thrills for area kids in need thanks to the Little River-Academy Volunteer Fire Department.

The department is hosting a haunted house every Friday and Saturday in October from 8PM to Midnight. (They will close at 11PM if it's a slow night). You can also visit on Halloween night from 8PM to 10PM.

Admission is $10, and the proceeds will go toward the department's annual Christmas toy drive for area children.

The haunted house is located in the City Offices at 509 E. Main Street, across from Academy High School.

For more information about the haunted house and the toy drive, call the Little River-Academy fire station at 254-360-0512.
