New Apparatus for Boston.

New Apparatus for Boston.

The new apparatus that was bought for the Boston fire department to replace that which was destroyed by fire has arrived. There are two engines, a city truck, an aerial truck and a chemical engine. The new apparatus represents an expenditure of about $19,000. One of the new engines will be established at Engine 9, East Boston, and the other, one of the second-class type, will be placed in reserve. The city truck is booked for Ladder 23 at Grove Hall. The truck from that house was destroyed in the fire and a relief truck is now located there. The new aerial truck is to be established at Truck 14’s house in Fort Hill square, while the new chemical is slated for service at the Bulfinch street station. The chemical engine in service at Bullfinch street will probably go to Shawmut avenue and the one at Shawmut avenue to Egleston square. The chemical at the Egleston square station will be put in reserve,
