HERRIN, IL (KFVS) -

The City of Herrin's fire department has had problems with their current Aerial truck.

They say the ladder equipped with the fire truck can't reach most of the buildings in downtown Herrin. 

But thanks to the funding by the Harrison/Bruce Foundations of Herrin, the City finally got an Aerial truck deemed worthy for service. The negotiated price: $400,000.

Currently, the truck won't ready for service until necessary equipment is bought, which is worth $30,000.
