At the funeral of city fire chief Robert Spinner in July, the Lynden Fire Department had a new engine parked outside — a purchase made possible, in part, due to the budgeting efforts of Spinner himself. Now, fresh out of additional shop prep, the engine is almost ready for service, providing an upgrade over a 1997 engine. According to current chief Gary Baar — coming out of retirement to fill in until a new chief is chosen — the department recently picked the engine up from a shop in Tacoma, where it was receiving a few minor tune-ups.
