    Ouch. Appears to be a Stuphen, which doesn't make any difference as they all will catch on fire and burn.

    Man, that was a damn nice reserve engine. Key word was. We have Sutphens at Dalton too. Love 'em. Glad everyone is ok though. And I'm curious about the gear colors too, noticed it in my Fireengineering mag with the Rescue 2 guys' article.

    Tan was the old gear and is the back-up gear now. If the front line black gear is being washed or fixed the tan is used. The switch was made a few years ago.

    Maybe if you quoted the OP instead of a post asking a question about a different topic your intent would've been clearer.

    As they say, "It Happens". Tough to have your truck on the news burning.

    In fact just last week, i was on watch and heard Rescue ___ to radio. Take us off the call, our truck is on fire!!! Call the shop mechanic and Go ahead and send a quint this way just in case we can't get it out!!!

    Turns out it was a huge deal just a transmission leak that caught the under carriage on fire. Truck was back in service the next day!!! dont worry the city shop fixed the problem haha.

    Glad everyone is safe....From what I heard, they barely even made it out of the truck. Once the cab had caught fire, they just barely had enough time to pull over, and jump out. All gear, and any personnel items in the cab were lost....Glad everyone is alright.
