CEDAR FORT, Utah (AP) - A new fire engine in Cedar Fort was previously used to fight the fires at the World Trade Center after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in New York City.
The Daily Herald of Provo says the city purchased the 35-foot-long fire engine for $60,000 from the Franklin Square Volunteer Fire Department in Long Island, N.Y.
The engine, which seats 10 firefighters, was named the "Pride of Liberty Place" by the Franklin Square firefighters. The name is emblazoned across the cab.
Cedar Fort volunteer firefighter Jack Homen was one of eight people who drove the engine from New York to Utah.
Homen was also at Ground Zero after the attacks as part of a Utah-based fire crew sent to help with search and rescue efforts.
