BARNEVELD, N.Y. — The Barneveld Fire Department hosted a training drill to help one of their firefighters propose to his girlfriend, a fellow firefighter.
FOX 35 reported that during an April 1 drill, Lt. Kelby Ueltschi enlisted the help of other firefighters to propose to his girlfriend, firefighter Becca Pelletier.
As Pelletier finished the drill, she turned around to find Ueltschi on one knee, with two firefighters holding a stretch of hose with the words, “Will you marry me?”
