The Ellendale Fire Company announced it has donated one of its engines to a Kentucky fire station that was destroyed by flooding last year.

The 1996 Monarch is headed to the Blackberry Volunteer Fire Department in Ransom, Kentucky, where the station was completely destroyed by flooding in August of 2021. The engine served the Ellendale company for 26 years.

Ellendale Fire says the Kentucky company has been working to rebuild the station, but hampered by funding – only receiving $11,000 in state assistance for the year.
