THE LONG ROAD HOME

 (The Observer/LAURA MACKIE-HANCOCK).
(The Observer/LAURA MACKIE-HANCOCK).

A 1925 Stutz fire engine arrived back home Friday after being completely restored by inmates at the Nevada State Prison. The fire engine was first acquired by the La Grande Fire Department in 1925. The city sold the engine in 1955 to a Boise insurance company that used it as a promotional tool. Its next owner was J.R. Simplot. Don Keeling, assistant chief of the La Grande Volunteer Department, located the truck in 1995 and played a key role in having the Simplot family donate the truck back to the La Grande Volunteer Fire Department. In August 2000, the truck was taken to the prison, which is known for its resoration work. Don Henry, left, and Keeling, take a moment to view the engine in all its spendor after it arrived back in La Grande. The fire engine is used by the La Grande Fire Department to promote fire safety and to give rides.
