Porter Township, Schuylkill County -- A fire company in Schuylkill County is operating without a fire engine.

West End Fire Company #3 in Porter Township lost its only engine when it broke down in January.

Now the firefighters are relying on mutual aid to keep their community safe.

The engine is sitting in Harrisburg waiting for repairs, but insurance won't cover the damage, so the fire company is stuck with a $12,000 bill.

The chief started an online fundraiser, and people in the Schuylkill County community are showing their support.
