BIRDSBORO, Pa. -

Some local police officers and firefighters went head to head Friday in an all-out battle royale.

Friday was the grand opening of the new Turkey Hill on Route 724 in Birdsboro.

The store had to be moved due to bridge construction.

Members of the Birdsboro Fire Department and Birdsboro Police Department were on hand for the event, and they competed against each other to scoop the tallest ice cream cone.

In the end, the fire department was victorious. The team was awarded $1,000, while the police department got $500.
