The mystery behind the firetruck that popped up recently off the Byron Frontage Road for sale has been solved.

The truck was owned by Byron resident and Kasson businessman Jason Wilker, who owns Wilker Retaining Walls.

Wilker purchased the truck, a 2005 model, last fall at an auction in Glencoe and said it was a deal he just couldn't pass up.

"It just kind of happened," said Wilker, who regularly attends vehicle auctions. "They were kind of begging for a bid, and I raised my hand not figuring I would own the thing."

But after winning the bid, own it he did.

Wilker said he stored it indoors at a friend's property after he failed to sell it right away and then put it back on the market this summer after he fixed some minor things on it.

Read the rest of the story in the print edition of the Star Herald or Byron Review.
