Following the Hippe fire in 1948, the Upsala Fire Department formally organized and purchased a 1928 Reo fire truck from the Sauk Centre Fire Department. The Upsala Area Historical Society was formed in 1979, with the express purpose of keeping this truck from being sold. It is now owned by Richard O’Hotto of Elmdale.
