There's a new fire truck in town

CENTRAL, TX (KTRE) - The Central Volunteer Fire Department has a new engine.

They just bought the fire truck from Salem Volunteer Fire Department in North Carolina.

They said thanks to donations from people in Central, Pollok, and Redtown, they were able to purchase the much-needed truck.

They said the new truck holds twice as much water as their old engines and it will allow them to have better response time.

The truck will go into service in about a month after it's outfitted with equipment.
