On Dec. 10, the first fire truck for Westlake (back then Dover Village), an original 1937 Ahren-Fox Pumper, was tranported to the Western Reserve Fire Museum and Education Center for a two-month display. The truck was restored by the Westlake Historical Society and bought back by the fire department 10 years ago for $1. It has a retrofitted engine from an auction at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

The museum, located at 310 Carnegie Ave., is open to the public from Wednesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $8 for adults, $6 for seniors and $5 for children.
