After an Ellis County (KS) fire truck recently broke down, the Scott County (KS) Fire Department stepped in to lend a hand, reports hayspost.com.

Ellis County fire officials say that, while on a call, a pump on Engine 50 failed. The cost to fix the 26-year-old system was upwards of $25,000, not including labor and other parts.

Officials add that one of the current company chiefs in Hays used to be on the Scott County Fire Department and, after a discussion, they offered to loan Ellis County a truck. Ellis County said it will lease the truck until a new one arrives in May 2022.

As part of the arrangement, Ellis County replaced an auxiliary pump on the Scott County truck used to fight grass fires.
