The world's first fire engine was commissioned by Augsburg, Germany, in 1518 and was made by Anteny Blatner, a craftsman who made metal crafts. According to "Augsburg City History of Crafts," a book records, this fire engine is the use of lever-mounted large pump mounted on the car formed by the horse or manpower to promote. In 1666 a fire broke out in London, England, burning for four days, burning 1,300 houses, including the famous St. Paul's Church. Some medieval buildings were swept away by the fire. After the disaster, the United Kingdom began to attach importance to the city's fire fighting work. Shortly afterwards, the British invented the world's first fire truck with a hand pump and used the hose to extinguish the fire.
Before the 18th century most of the fire engines on the cart on the manual pump, used to pump fire. As urban development and fire protection demand increased, steam engines started to appear in the mid-nineteenth century and began to be carried in wagons.

However, this type of fire engine was widely used in the United Kingdom until the 1860s. After the invention of the internal combustion engine in the 20th century, the modern fire engines that are now seen are gradually emerging. In 1872, Germany developed a ladder fire truck. Ladder is operated by hand. In 1901, Loyal-Kalidi, Liverpool, England, also produced fire-fighting vehicles, which were used by the Liverpool Fire Department.
