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.
