ROBY, Mo. -- The Roby (Mo.) Fire Department is the new owner of a 1991 fire truck. It arrived as a gift from a volunteer department in Rochester, Pa.

And it comes just in time. The small Texas County fire department's old truck barely runs. The fire department feared it would have to close because of its old truck. KY3 reported earlier this year about offers from fire departments across the country to help.

The Roby Fire Department says it is expecting two more trucks, one from Delaware and another from Minnesota.
