Marrowbone KY Fire Trucks

Marrowbone is north of Elkhorn City KY on 460/80 between Draffin and Millard.  Wiki says it’s been known at Regina, but I see Regina a couple of miles to the east.  These trucks were sitting outside the Volunteer Fire Department.  We’d smelled wood smoke coming in and saw a haze of smoke.  This is why I didn’t get a picture of an unusual truck parked in their station bay.  Just as I walked up, the volunteer fireman on duty closed the door and was hurrying off.  He said he had to go help the others fight the forest fire up the road.

This first one is a Sutphen, maybe 1993 or so.  Major unit.


This is its badge:



And this Ford with a 428-4V engine, maybe early 80’s:
