Scuba divers sink antique fire truck into Gray quarry

GRAY, Tenn. (WJHL) – A fire truck sank into a large body of the water Saturday morning. But it wasn’t an accident, it was intentional.

A group of certified divers lowered the antique fire truck about 60 feet in to the Gray Quarry.

The owners of the quarry let scuba divers train and explore the water, located just behind Exit 13 off Interstate 26, and said the truck will add a new dimension of excitement for recreational divers.

Certified scuba diver, Carter Warden said the fire truck is not the only vehicle they have lowered into the water.

“We’ve already put a school bus down,” said Warden. “And we have several statues and a few other things for divers to enjoy and to make it interesting for students and local divers.”

Warden said the group has continued to make more improvements about and below the water at the Gray Quarry.
