SULLIVAN, Mo. (AP) — An eastern Missouri fire crew that worked to douse an apartment fire wound up having one of its pickup trucks stolen.
St. Louis television station KTVI (http://bit.ly/OEefc1) reports that the theft happened while Sullivan firefighters were fighting a two-alarm blaze early Thursday.
Authorities believe the fire was contained to one building housing several apartment units. There were no immediate reports of injuries.
KTVI says that a Ford F-250 pickup truck used in fighting brush fires was stolen from the scene and was later found hours later about a mile away.
There was no immediate word on any arrests.
