NORTH LAS VEGAS -- The city of North Las Vegas is using fire engines considered past their prime. Some have been on the road for so long, they're now even beyond national standards for replacement.
City leaders say they're being careful with money, but the firefighter's union calls it unacceptable. The city hasn't purchased a new fire engine in five years because of the poor economy which has resulted in a constant juggling act to repair and maintain trucks.
When you call for help -- chances are -- you probably don't think how those first responders get to you.
