The West Allis Fire Department has bought back a 1930 Peter Pirsche, reports CBS 58 WDJT-Milwaukee.
The department used it up until the 1970’s when it was auctioned off. It wound up in the hands of a collector who decided to downsize and asked the West Allis Fire Department if they’d want to buy it back.
The department bought the engine for $7,500 in 1930. They bought it back for $14,900.
