Fire delays fire truck dedication in Vt.

Posted: Updated:

WEATHERSFIELD, Vt. (AP) - Officials in a Vermont town had to scrap plans to dedicate their new fire truck - they needed it to fight a fire.

The new No. 4 pumper was delivered to the Ascutney fire station on Wednesday with plans for a dedication. But within a few hours of the delivery, the fire department needed it for a house fire in Perkinsville that left several animals dead.

Ascutney Fire Chief Darrin Spaulding tells the Eagle-Times the truck did an excellent job on its first call.

A dedication was held Thursday.
