Burnsville Fire Muster makes it into the Guinness World Book of Records 2004It's a trick question: How many fire trucks do you need in a parade to get into the Guinness Book of World Records?

"Well, technically, I suppose one would be a record," said Kevin Stirtz, a little sheepishly. That's because Stirtz and the city of Burnsville will be establishing a new world record category when they gather fire trucks from five states for the city's annual Fire Muster celebration Sept. 10-12. Their record won't be easy to break they hope to have 100 trucks, the results 85.
