WATERVLIET, N.Y.--A local fire department seeks help as one of its members battles cancer.

A lieutenant with the Schuyler Heights Fire company, Frank Ellsworth, is a father and grandfather  diagnosed with esophageal cancer.

"You don't know who your friends are until you actually see this. And it's just been great. The brotherhood has been incredible,"said Ellsworth at a benefit held Sunday.
