PHOTOS: 2020 Indiana University Graduate Olivia Rusk was in Hidalgo Mexico earlier this year as an English Teaching Assistant for COMEXUS Fulbright-Garcia Robles. One day she was out exploring nearby towns. When she got off of a bus, she noticed an old fire truck sitting in a nearby parking lot. “My dad loves old vehicles so I went over to get some photos to send to him,” she said. “When I got closer, I was shocked,” continued Rusk. “The markings on the truck said ‘Hartford City Fire Department!” “How did a fire truck from Hartford City end up in a parking lot in a small town in Mexico, thousands of miles away,” she thought. “I grew up in Fort Wayne. My dad now lives in Marion, and we’re familiar with the area,” explained Rusk. “I sent the photos to my father and he contacted former Hartford City Fire Chief, Ron Parrott.”
