VIDEO: Thursday is the deadline to save the Spirit of Oklahoma fire truck. While the fundraiser is still thousands of dollars short, there is new, last-minute hope that the truck will be rescued. The truck symbolizes a bond between New York and Oklahoma firefighters after two terror attacks. If the Calera Fire Department can't come up with the money in time, a museum may step in to front the rest of the money, but there are no guarantees. The first page of the Spirit of Oklahoma fire truck's story was written 26 years ago - with the blood and tears shed by Oklahoma and New York City fire rescue crews in the aftermath of the Oklahoma City Bombing. Years later, a new chapter was written in the ashes of the September 11th attacks.
