A $150,000 grant from a local business has helped the Rose Hill (NC) Volunteer Fire Department purchase a new 100-foot aerial platform quint.

Department officials said that this type of fire apparatus has been necessary in the past, but required a special call.

Smithfield Foods, a farming corporation with more than a quarter of its operations in North Carolina, provided the $150,000 grant.
