    City of Quincy Donates Plow Trucks to Sandisfield After Fire
    NECN

    A Massachusetts town at one end of the state has spread holiday cheer to a town at the other end that lost its entire snow-plowing fleet in a fire.

    The Berkshire Eagle reports Quincy has given Sandisfield three used plow trucks that were delivered before Christmas.

    Quincy's mayor saw a report about the fire on a television news program and decided to donate the trucks. A spokesman for the mayor says the equipment otherwise would have been auctioned off as surplus.

    Sandisfield Road Superintendent Bobby O'Brien says the trucks need a little work but are in good condition.
