Syracuse Fire and Rescue used new rough-terrain vehicle to fight Nebraska wildfires

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — A new brush attack vehicle is up and running for Syracuse Fire and Rescue.

Its first time in action was the Sunday wildfires.

This new GMC truck features a water tank and pump, installed by a local company, to fight fires in rough terrain.

The fire chief said purchasing a truck and fitting it with the proper equipment, rather than buying a ready-made vehicle, saved taxpayers more than $130,000.

Syracuse is a city of about 1,900 about 35 miles southeast of Lincoln.
