Back on July 5, a Reading fire engine caught fire on Lowell Street. According to Reading Fire Chief Gregory Burns, he is working with town's insurance company to get the engine fixed. The insurance company will have to examine the engine to determine the cause of the fire.
The engine also has to be examined in the presence of a representative from Caterpillar and Seagrave, the manufacturer. The cause should be determined this week and then the engine will be repaired.
According to Burns, the engine was a fairly new addition to the department. They received it in late 2008.
