Do you have Vehicle tracking  or Autoturn both have extensive library of vehicles as well as make your own. These do true swept paths handy when trying to Tighten a intersection for safety reasons sometimes just checking does not hit signs. I situation I had.

Do you know the actual specifications for the UK fire engine?

If so, as mentioned by BIGAL, easy to set up a custom vehicle.

If not, how do you know the supplied vehicles are wrong?

Building regulation asked for a "Minimum turning circle between kerbs (m) 16.8" none of the vehicles in the library are close to that so didn't know if anyone else had come across this before

Do you need a vehicle swept path if you have been given the minimum turning circle?

Bit odd our typical urban road standards in simple terms are min 8m inside radius with a road width of say 6.4 some are less but only as access to limited properties. Never heard that fire trucks could not get into these roads. During house construction even semis get into these streets. The simple answer is drive down the wrong side of the road.  A fire truck will drive over kerbs or what ever  to get there. The intersection I talked about sat with one of my colleagues who is a volunteer fire fighter and we played with the truck specs and kerbs to come up with best compromise. I had a look at the intersection after built and was some evidence of tyre marks on kerbs but that was the intention to slow down vehicles, as a side note the wrong side of the intersection was way more generous for the fire truck and he said that is what they would do without hesitation.
