FORT MADISON, Ia. (WGEM) -

In May, a Fort Madison fire truck was damaged after falling into water near the Mississippi River.

With the help of insurance, a new truck will be coming to the department next year. 

The city council approved the purchase of a $568,865 truck from Alexis Fire Equipment in Illinois.

The fire department says insurance is paying for the majority of it and it is expected to come in February of 2018.
