I was told at New ‘N Towne’s Ttouch a Truck event this morning that the firetruck that had the fire was a vintage 1980’s engine.
Chief Carrico states in an email received yesterday:
Specialty Vehicles is loaning us a 1989 Pierce Lancer with a 1500 gal pump and 1000 gal tank for $1. The only requirement is we have to carry a min. of $10,000 of insurance coverage and register it as a Medfield Vehicle.

This morning at approximately 0945 hours, while performing truck checks at the fire station, an electrical fire started in the cab of Engine 3. There is moderate damage to the cabs electrical system and the only way we could kill the power to the cab was to disconnect the batteries. We are working with Specialty Vehicles of Plainville to find a temporary replacement for the engine.
