Volunteer fire truck

A fire started on some grasslands near a farm. The county fire
department was called to put out the fire. The fire was more than the
county fire department could handle. Someone suggested that a nearby
volunteer bunch be called. Despite some doubt that the volunteer outfit
would be of any assistance, the call was made.
The volunteers arrived in a dilapidated old fire truck. They rumbled
straight towards the fire, drove right into the middle of the flames and
stopped! The firemen jumped off the truck and frantically started
spraying water in all directions. Soon they had snuffed out the center
of the fire, breaking the blaze into two easily-controlled parts.
Watching all this, the farmer was so impressed with the volunteer fire
department's work and was so grateful that his farm had been spared,
that right there on the spot he presented the volunteers with a check
for $1,000. A local news reporter asked the volunteer fire captain what
the department planned to do with the funds.
"That ought to be obvious, " he responded, wiping ashes off his coat.
"The first thing we're gonna do is get the brakes fixed on our fire
