Fire Engine buying tip: Measure the firehouse first

A new, approximately $1 million fire truck, recently purchased by the town of Clarksville [New Zealand] , is too large to fit in the town’s professional firehouses.

“Our Station No. 2 is not big enough to house it,” said Fire Chief Bob Hansford.

The ladder truck is being kept at the department’s volunteer firehouse on Hale Road, leaving officials to consider an up to $100,000 contract to staff the volunteer house with a certified driver.
