Ville Platte donates fire truck


The Ville Platte City Council voted to donate a 45-year-old fire truck to St. Landry Fire District 3 in July.

On Thursday, the truck was officially turned over to St. Landry fire officials. Ville Platte Mayor Jennifer Vidrine. Said the cost to the city to restore the truck to its original use would be "abominable."

The cost would be about $30,000. But the truck still runs, so the St. Landry fire fighters will use it to haul equipment, as a reserve service truck.
