Crittenden Justice: Jericho FD does not deserve money to fix truck

JERICHO, AR (KAIT) – One Arkansas town is fighting for money to repair its only fire truck.

The Jericho Fire Department is asking Crittenden County for help, but according to the West Memphis Times, one justice has said the department does not deserve the money.

The dissenting justice said the court gave Jericho the money a couple of years ago to fix the truck, but the department spent it on something else.

Volunteers at the department have been paying for operations out of their own pocket.
