By Natalie Neumann

An old fire house in Silver Spring, Maryland has been transformed into restaurant, but it's staying close to it's roots.

Once firefighters and trucks hurried out of Fire Station One to put out neighborhood blazes, but today cooks chop food and flip burgers at what's now a restaurant and brewing company.

Jeremy Gruber is owner of the fire station-themed restaurant. He's also a retired captain who worked out of the station on and off for 20 years. He says other former firefighters like what's been done.

"It's able to restore giving back to the community and the history, and preserve a lot of memories," he says.

Along with serving food, Gruber plans to offer health care and medical training there.

The restaurant will have a celebration opening on Sunday and on Monday they will have a fundraiser for the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.
