JUNCTION CITY, Ore. - Last week we told you about three firefighters in Junction City that were training for the annual Scott Firefighter Stair Climb over the weekend.

It was a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and firefighters from around the world climb straight up the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle, a total of 69 flights of stairs, or 1,356 steps, while wearing full firefighting gear.
