The La Crosse Fire Department dedicated a new fire engine to a local firefighter who died decades ago, reports WIZM News.

The new Quint 1 truck bears the name of Engineer Jim McCormick. He died shortly after experiencing chest pains at a fire scene on Thanksgiving Day of 1957.

The ceremony was disrupted in the middle of a speech by La Crosse Mayor when responders ran to the scene of a vehicle rollover.

The average vehicle in the fire department has a life span of 20 years.
