Author, restaurateur make donation to Petersburg Fire Department

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- An author and a restaurant owner made a big donation to the Petersburg Fire Department Sunday at the Halligan Bar & Grill Sunday. Michael Brigati, the author of Fire Thieves, and Shaw Gregory, the owner of the Halligans presented a check for $1,000 to Petersburg's fire captain.

The donation comes from a percentage of Brigati's book sales and sales at the bar.

The Petersburg Fire Department has been hit hard amid the city's $12 million budget deficit.

Last year more than 100 Petersburg first responders rallied to save their jobs.
