05/30/10 76 W, 1 I - + 5 - 8 Spruce Pine Tanker

Photographer Lee Wilson is spending his holiday weekend in the North Carolina mountains, and is taking pictures of apparatus in those parts. He's posted photos of a tanker recently received by the Spruce Pine Fire Department. The very red 1995 International carries 2,300 gallons and is equipped with a 750 GPM pump. Designated Tanker 11, it was purchased from Calgary in Alberta, Canada. Love the lettering! See more photos, or click to enlarge:
