Warren Township Fire Company 4 - 1948 International KB-8/Oren - 500gpm/500gal
This incredibly restored engine served Muir, PA in the southern Poconos from 1948-1994 as a frontline engine. It was purchased by an Indianapolis resident in 1999 with the intention of chopping off the back and making it into a flatbed car carrier! Luckily, local volunteers helped Warren Township purchase the unit. Over the course of three years, Engineer Michael Fontaine of Station 42 and Engineer Gary Powell of Station 43 spent over 2,000 man hours restoring this engine to its amazing current condition.

While no longer in frontline service, Fire Company 4's engines and pumps are in full working condition. Accessories include the original ladders, nozzles and hand-lanterns amongst the many painstaking details of this restoration.
