BBQ restaurant to hold fundraiser for injured Apopka firefighter on Thursday

A fundraiser is being held on Thursday at an Apopka restaurant to raise funds for Austin Duran, a firefighter who was injured on the job.

Duran's family says he suffered serious injuries and will have a long road to recovery.

Porkie's Original BBQ at 256 E. Main Street is donating a portion of their sales on Thursday to the family. You may remember, Porkie's is the same restaurant that dropped prices amid inflation to help families be able to afford a meal out.

If you would like to help, you can donate to Duran's GoFundMe. So far, over $65,000 has been raised.
