A north suburban boy who's battling a rare form of brain cancer got a surprise outside his Libertyville home Monday night.

A parade of police and fire vehicles from all over Lake County was for Connor Johnson.

On Friday, the 4-year-old boy received fire gear from the Lincolnshire Fire Department and was told to wear it Monday night. But Johnson didn't know about the parade.

He also got to take a ride around the neighborhood in a fire truck.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation helped make the surprise possible.
