With sirens screaming, this blazing book delivers a stunning tribute to firefighting history over the past 200 years. From human bucket brigades and horse-drawn steam pumpers, Fire Engines arrives on-scene to fans the flames of technology from the earliest rigs to today's powerful trucks, engines and rescue vehicles. Rugged workhorses from American LaFrance, Emergency One, Mack, Ahrens-Fox and Seagrave, together with first-hand interviews and vintage advertisements, present a red-hot look at the battle to control civilization's oldest enemy.
