VIDEO: One small town in Massachusetts is coming to the aid of another in Kentucky after its fire department was devastated by a recent tornado. The tornado that ripped through Kentucky on the night of Dec. 10 was on the ground for 235 miles, obliterating everything in its path. It hit the rural town of Cayce hard, tearing apart its all-volunteer fire department. "I live 2 miles from the station and I watched it walk right across my station," said Chief Wade Adams of the Cayce Fire Department. The department lost everything, including all of its trucks and firefighting apparatus. "When I topped the hill and you could see the station it was a pile of rubble," said Adams. When the call went out that Cayce was in desperate need of a 3,000-gallon tanker to replace one lost in the tornado, the town of Rochester, Massachusetts, answered that call.
