EAST LANSING, MI (WILX) -- East Lansing's Fire Department has a brand new tool to help fight fires in high-rise buildings.
The city dedicated a 100-foot-ladder truck on Thursday.
The truck came fully equipped with features and modifications that will allow firefighter-paramedics to work extended periods of time.
The truck also has the capability to fight fires in buildings up to eight stories high.
The truck replaces the city's old 75-foot-ladder truck that had a broken frame.
The truck cost nearly $1 million and was paid for with money set aside for fleet replacements along with money from East Lansing's income tax.
