A Massachusetts town at one end of the state has spread holiday cheer to a town at the other end that lost its entire snow-plowing fleet in a fire.
The Berkshire Eagle reports Quincy has given Sandisfield three used plow trucks that were delivered before Christmas.
Quincy's mayor saw a report about the fire on a television news program and decided to donate the trucks. A spokesman for the mayor says the equipment otherwise would have been auctioned off as surplus.
Sandisfield Road Superintendent Bobby O'Brien says the trucks need a little work but are in good condition.

The state highway department and other cities also have pitched in to help, donating or lending equipment and assisting in plowing efforts.
