The Mooretown Rancheria Fire Department has two new engines to help fight wildfires, but they're not your typical fire trucks.

The fire department recently received two first-of-their-kind wildfire engines in California. The engines are designed for off-road mobile attack, where other larger and heavier fire engines cannot go.

Both engines carry about four hundred gallons of water and 10 gallons of foam to fight wild land fires.

The fire engines were built in Kirby, Texas and cost the Mooretown Rancheria about $170,000.
