▶️ 15 More Minutes of Fame: Sunriver firefighters featured on American Idol

Sunriver’s finest got some national attention Sunday night during the latest episode of American Idol.

Back in November, a gas leak in a Sunriver Resort kitchen prompted the 911 call, which interrupted the hit show’s taping at The Great Hall.

Once the gas leak was cleared, some of the firefighters took to the audition stage and busted out a rendition of Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long.”

Video of the performance was a hit on our Facebook page and beyond, but Sunday night they went really big – like 8 million viewers big.
