The Somerset Volunteer Fire Department hosted the 129th annual convention of the Western Pennsylvania Firemen’s Association last week. Fire departments from 32 counties in western Pennsylvania attended. The parade on Saturday included many of the local firetrucks, fire department bands and local kids. Before the parade, one visiting fire department's firetruck caught fire in front of 779 North Center Ave., Somerset, near Dairy Queen. Sipesville, Listie and Scalp Level fire departments were dispatched, as well as Somerset Borough Police Department. Somerset police Chief Randy Cox said a fire department had just arrived in Somerset when their truck's brakes caught fire. Cox said the firetruck's tires exploded from the flames but no one was injured. Somerset fire Chief Jim Clark said the truck was from the St. Thomas Township Volunteer Fire & Rescue Company.
