FAIRFIELD — A team from the Fairfield Fire Department beat a team from the Fairfield Police Department in basketball on Saturday, 66-52, at Armijo High School’s E. Gary Vaughn Gymnasium.
The score was tied 48-48 before the firefighters began to pull away, finally breaking open a close game at the end of the fourth quarter.
But the real winner was SafeQuest Solano, which benefitted from the fundraiser. Organizers did not know Saturday night how much money the Dunk Domestic Violence event made. The evening included a barbecue, dunk contest and raffle.
