This must have been embarrassing!

This must have been embarrassing for the Bisbee Fire Department! Here’s a blurb from a 1920 Bisbee Daily Review, printed in its entirety:

Bisbee Fire department responded to an alarm from the Horace Mann junior high school yesterday. Crew No. 2 got there first, but as the truck turned up the hill from Tombstone Canyon Road, the driver killed his motor and was forced to back down.

No. 1 then arrived and succeeded in getting a little further up the hill, but the driver stalled the motor on a sharp turn to avoid hitting the wall.

In the meantime the school children put out the fire.
