20The First Fire Engine Was Found In Ancient Greece
This first fire brigade obviously didn't involve any kind of actual trucks but instead relied upon the aqueduct systems found throughout ancient Greece.
While the fire truck pictured above may be from Greece, it most definitely isn't the first fire truck to have ever been invented. It's said that the first fire brigade originated in ancient Greece as commissioned by Marcus Licinius Crassus.
This is where we find the oldest evidence anyway. The journey to
the fire truck we see today is a fascinating one and involved a few intermediary steps along the way. We'll see the next big one next.
