Hoxie acquires new fire truck

HOXIE, AR (KAIT) - The Hoxie Fire Department, being without one of their trucks after a January accident, has finally replaced their old #2 unit which brings the department up to standards.

John Jenkins with the Hoxie Fire Department said the new vehicle has a 2,000 gallon tank which can pump 250 gallons of water per minute.

"The pump is large enough to actually be classified as a tanker pumper and what it replaced was just a pumper," Jenkins said.

The only thing left to do on the new truck is paint the Hoxie Fire Department logo on the new ride.
