04/15/12 158 W, 1 I - + 6 - 3 Field of Fire Trucks on I-95 in Georgia


More than one person has asked me in recent years about a field of fire trucks on Interstate 95 in Georgia. Google finds others with the same question, and even some photos (such as these on Flickr) and footage (see embed below). A couple dozen pumpers, ladders, and crash trucks are parked on the east side of the road, at the end of Tram Road in South Newport, GA. That's about Mile Marker 63. At the intersection of Tram Road and Highway 17 are a couple commercial-sized structures, from the looks of aerial maps. And more fire truck-looking vehicles. Plus military trucks, which are also roadside along the interstate. Still don't know the story, but we might get a closer view, as Mr. and Mrs. Blogger are heading to Savannah next month. This location is 45 minutes south. Sounds like a worthy diversion. Will report back!
 


 




It is a used fire truck sales company that has had about 5 or 6 different names, Firehouse 66 was one, search that to see some more info. I was by there about a month ago and almost everything was gone. Rumor has it, it went for scrap. Still a few trucks and a bunch of military units.

That website looked familiar. Here’s a Firegeezer post on that “business”: http://firegeezer.com/2011/11/15/morning..
