There’s no chimney at Riverside University Health System in Moreno Valley, so Santa Claus teamed up with firefighters to scale an engine ladder to deliver toys to the medical center’s third-floor pediatric unit.

Cal Fire/Riverside County Fire Department and Saint Nick delivered toys Saturday, Dec. 23, that were donated through the Spark of Love Toy Drive.
