Photo: Lake Dillon Fire “backs” new engine into service

Caption: Upholding a tradition dating to the days when horse-drawn fire wagons had to be backed into the fire station manually, the B-Shift crew of Lake Dillon Fire-Rescue on Friday afternoon ceremonially pushes the department's new engine into Station 8. The engine, which weighs about 42,000 pounds including its 500 gallons of water, features state-of-the-art safety equipment, including back-up cameras, although they weren't necessary at the moment.
