Service When It Was Needed

Service When It Was Needed

A delivery engineer employed by the W. S. Nott Company had an interesting experience as he was driving a machine to the point where it was to be delivered.

At a point in the road he saw a Chevrolet truck loaded with poultry, and the driver frantically trying to extinguish a fire underneath the hood of the truck.’ He tried to put the fire out with sand and gravel but was not successful.

The fire apparatus was one fitted with a chemical tank and booster arrangement. It was not difficult to extinguish the gasoline fire with a stream supplied by the booster tank. It seemed as though the small stream of water under high pressure, blew the fire out.
