A friendly competition to help raise money is planned for today at Whataburger.

The Midland Fire Department and Midland Police are battling it out to see who can "Bring the Heat" in a jalapeno eating contest to raise money for their charity of choice.

The winning department that consumes the most jalapenos in 60 seconds will get $1500 to donate to their favorite charity.

Also the department that brings the most people in to see the competition will get an additional $500.

The event will be happening at the Whataburger at 1905 N. Big Spring st. in Midland today (4/18/17) from 5-7 p.m.
