Fire Engine



Welcome to Fire Fighter Week here at OPOD. We will be looking at the men and equipment used to fight fires over the last hundred years. We start with this picture from Washington DC taken around 1900. It shows a horse-drawn fire engine. It looks like they are getting ready to back the rig into the fire house.

  1. Not an easy job. Horses do NOT like to go backwards. Probably would have been easier to unhitch the critters and push the engine in by themselves.
