Lulubelle was CFD's first mechanized engine. She's a 1926 American LaFrance pumper. Lulubelle is the pride and joy of the Clinton Fire Department. We proudly put her on display year after year at fire shows and parades, usually coming home with a trophy. She was refurbished in the late 1980's to her current state. In 2012 several CFD members overhauled the engine to ensure she will be running strong for years to come.
