VIDEO: A local fire department in Beaver County is going back in time after getting a very special delivery over the weekend. The Conway Volunteer Fire Department has its 1938 Darley Fire Engine returned to its station on Sunday after being without it for more than 50 years. The fire chief tells KDKA that the truck was donated in the 1970's when it was replaced with a newer truck. He says he received a phone call about six months ago, asking if he knew who originally owned the truck. The department that has had the truck is from Satellite Beach, Florida. The chief there said he would donate it back, and Tow-Tegrity from New Brighton generously offered to bring the truck back for free.
