RED FIRE TRUCK FASCINATES ONLOOKERS AT HOLLIS BLAZE
At the big Yard fire yesterday, the assembled crowd watched with rapt attention the machinations of the Cambridge Fire Department with their shiny new truck.
This latter, a magnificent red and sliver creation of doubtful parentage, is completely equipped with a non-detachable, streamlined ladder of some 100 feet in length.
On arrival in the front of Hollis the new truck was given the place of honor and the all-in-one-piece ladder was run up with eclat but unfortunately it was long by about 20 feet and wrapped itself around the roof. A shorter, old fashioned ladder did the trick, but as the fireman who stands on the back platform said, the new one "shore looks purity up there."
