MONROVIA, AL (WAFF) -

The Monrovia Volunteer Fire Department broke in a brand new tool for fighting grass fires during a Monday afternoon call.

Firefighters used their new Polaris Ranger 6-wheel all-terrain-vehicle to help put out a grass fire near Research Park.

The ATV has a water tank that will hold more than 200 gallons of water, two hoses and a water pump.

The fire department got the new ride for fires just like Monday's.
