Red All Over

June 27, 2011

“Red” is the name written on the side of the truck. And, red is the color of the paint on the truck – all over.

This past Saturday Red was headed to a wildland fire. Midway towards the fire the driver noticed that her toes – even through her boots – were getting just a bit toasty. Then the smoke started billowing outwards from the front of the truck – as the paint sizzled in circular fashion in the center of the hood. Red was on fire!

The driver pulled Red over. What started as a wildland fire had turned into a truck fire. Red was quickly extinguished, but the damage had been inflicted. Red made the trip back to the station behind a tow truck.

The insurance agency representative was contacted today and will send out an adjuster tomorrow. Hopefully the news won’t be too bad and Red can be patched back together soon. Until then keep Red in your thoughts and your prayers.
