Blaze Damages Fire Truck

Issue 7 and Volume 107.

Blaze Damages Fire Truck A 20-year-old fire truck—the “newest” of the two pieces of apparatus of the city of Rogers, Ark., was badly damaged by fire while fighting a grass fire last April. Fire Chief Jacobs said oil and grease on the underside of the vehicle ignited. The city council has authorized the expenditure of $800 to recondition the damaged truck, and place it in stand-by. Meanwhile, with the city “protected,” by a single vehicle (vintage of 1919), the cities of Springdale and Bentonville, Ark., are cooperating to provide additional fire protection. An election will be held shortly to vote on a bond issue for new apparatus.
