MONTREAL, Que. — The maintenance folks with the City of Montreal have a few more rigs to take care of thanks to a local drought.

The city has deployed six tanker trucks at the two fire stations serving the eastern section of Montreal, which is suffering from a water shortage due to the break of a major water main.

The trucks will carry water to pumper trucks in case of a fire. The pumper trucks are already filled with water so that they can react quickly when they arrive at a fire.

The Montreal Fire Department says that the zone that is experiencing the water shortage is relatively small, so the tanker trucks can be quickly refilled. They will also have a police escort to help them travel quickly to the scene of a fire.
