As of noon Friday, more than 210,000 viewers have watched the video on YouTube.

As of Wednesday, the video had about 40,000 views and then topped 100,000 by Thursday morning.

The YouTube video of Sedan firefighters Ben Terhaar and Ted Aubart that shows the firefighters manning fire hoses while wearing long gowns has been a hot item since it was posted this weekend.

Bystander Paul Streitz happened to shoot video of the firefighters' effort. The video was soon posted on YouTube and Facebook and now the Sedan's firefighters in drag have become an Internet favorite.
