    Is this the truck that was brand new 2 or 3 years ago, and that cost about $1 million? No one is writing about this. Is this the only truck that VFD had? And as a followup, has the VFD made any statement about this truck and whether it will be replaced? And how does its loss affect the firefighting capability of VFD?

      @ Chris
      This truck repaced our old one which is still in opperation as a back up , the cost of replacement should be over $ 1,000,000 (insurance situation ukn) , it is amazing there ewre no fatalities . the images look like it might be beyond repair , a full replacement seems imenint .
