JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The Shady Grove Volunteer Fire Department has purchased a new fire engine.

The $255,000 truck is a 3,000 gallon pumper tanker.

It was paid for by an “Assistance to Firefighters” grant from FEMA.

The truck will replace an aging 1964 fire engine and will also keep the fire rates from going up.

The new fire engine was purchased from Deep South Fire Trucks in Seminary.
