CRIDERSVILLE — An area fire department is ready to sell a piece of equipment.
The Cridersville Fire Department is looking to auction off their 1994 Jeep, which has 112,973 miles, a 2.5L engine and 4-wheel drive. This unit was used as a grass fire truck.
“I think the Jeep will be worth some good money because people have shown interest in it,” Cridersville Village Council member Tony Zuppardo said this week at the village’s regular council meeting.
