Mo. City Loses Fire Trucks in Fire

May 31, 2017

The Gainesville Volunteer Fire Department (Mo.) lost the last of its fire trucks in a building fire early Tuesday morning. The department was already running on a limited fleet after being hit by a major flood last month, reports the Ozark County Times.

A ladder truck, a brush truck, and a pumper were all lost in the fire, as well as some firefighting equipment. Although the cause of the fire is still being investigated, it is speculated to have started in the electrical system of a truck, reports KSPR.

For now, the Gainesville Volunteer Fire Department will borrow one fire truck from a neighboring fire department and another from a local fire apparatus manufacturer, reports the Baxter Bulletin.
