BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - They run into burning buildings to save our lives and they do it for free.
But now, volunteer firefighters are facing their own emergency in these financially troubled times.

Between the high price of gas and the crumbling stock market, some may be forced to make a tough choice when it comes to responding to emergency calls.

Donald, Szumigala, Doyle said, "People will have less time to volunteer because they'll be forced to work a 2nd or 3rd or 4th job to make ends meet."

Monday night, News 4's Tricia Cruz takes a closer look at the problem and what's being done to handle this emergency.

Watch News 4 at 5 Monday night for this story.
