WICHITA, Kan. A music video is getting a lot of attention and questions after it featured a Station 15 Wichita fire truck. 

Fire Marshal Stuart Bevis told KSNW fire trucks are used for public service announcements or charity issues, but they have to be “in uses that are keeping with the mission of the department or the city as a whole.” 

Bevis told KSNW this is a personnel issue that is under investigation, but the video is not within the mission of the fire department or the city of Wichita. 

KSNW reached out to the rappers in the video. They accepted their call and were initially ready to discuss the music video, but when asked about the fire truck and how they got permission, they quickly ended the call, according to KSNW.
