Monticello (MN) 1929 Fire Apparatus Restored

The Monticello Fire Department looked to Jerry Klein, a former firefighter with the Cologne Fire Department, to help restore a 1929 fire truck, reports Monticello Times.

The 1929 Chevrolet fire truck has a long history in Monticello. It is the first truck ever purchased by the department. 

The Chevrolet Triple combination Type AA truck was shipped to Monticello from the manufacturer and held 300 gallons of water. It came with an 80 gallon booster chemical tank.
