WARFIELD, Ky. (AP) - A fire department in Warfield has filed a lawsuit to get its repossessed fire trucks back.

WCHS-TV (https://bit.ly/2axZ96h ) reports that the Warfield Volunteer Fire Department is suing First Government Lease Co. and AA Repo East, LLC to get four fire trucks back after they were repossessed in May.

The fire department is also asking for monetary damages for what it says is harm to the community for not having the trucks to respond to emergencies. Surrounding fire departments have since responded to emergencies.

Chris Harris, an attorney representing the fire department, says he believes fraud was involved in the repossession of the vehicles.

It’s unclear if the defendants in the lawsuit have attorneys.
