South County Fire welcomed its new fire engine Tuesday morning with a traditional roll-in ceremony.
During the ceremony, those in attendance pushed the new engine into Lynnwood Civic Center Fire Station 15. The custom dates back to the 1830s and the days of horse-drawn equipment, which could not be easily backed into the station. Firefighters would unhitch the horse team and push the equipment into the station.
