A fire truck that responded to Brockton’s 1941 Strand Theater tragedy has returned home, reports WCVB 5.
During that incident at the Strand Theater, the structure partially collapsed and killed 13 firefighters inside.
In the years that followed, the fire truck was sold many times over and eventually was in the possession of Billerica firefighter Dave Feyler. Feyler saw a photo and realized the truck had been at the Strand Theater fire. He then started the work of bringing the truck home.
Just feet from where the theater once stood, the Squad A truck joined Wednesday’s ceremony marking the 80th anniversary of the tragedy.
