MILLER COUNTY, Mo. -- The Tri-County Fire Protection District at the Lake of the Ozarks warns about a possible scam

The fire department shared on Facebook it received reports of someone impersonating firefighters, asking for donations for the Tri-County Fire District Christmas Ball. The fire department is not doing such a fundraiser.

If you receive one of these calls, you are asked to write down the number and call police. The fire protection district says it will never ask you for money over the phone of email.
