It had meant to be a surprise, a Guard of Honour for the Chief and his Bride.
The crews had spent hours preparing the trucks, praying they wouldn’t be needed before the big day.
As the happy couple emerged from the church, they heard more than bells.
The alarm went off and all fire crews sprang into action on reflex. They got drenched.
Luckily no-one was hurt and the fire put out before any serious damage was done.
The headline in the paper read:
“Bride and Groom start married life with a Splash of Holy Water”.
