PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Pigeon Forge Fire Department has a new truck that just rolled into town to help fight wildfires in Sevier County.
The city bought the new truck at a cost of $110,000 to help with wildfire threats. The chief says this truck can go places a normal fire truck can't, and it take 300 gallons of water and 30 gallons of foam.
"It's going to be able to get into those tight spots that we won't be able to get into with a larger engine you might see. So it's going to be a real needed asset that we need in our arsenal to be able to take care of those wild land threats," said Chief Tony Watson.
The truck was paid for through a donation from Dollywood and the city's regular budget.
