BATTERIES STOLEN OUT OF APPARATUS IN TN – UNABLE TO RESPOND

A Mid-South volunteer fire department is working to repair a tanker truck after someone stole the truck batteries.

The Hardin County Fire Department learned two batteries were stolen from a tanker when firefighters tried to respond to a call on Tuesday.

The volunteer firefighters got a 911 call for a house fire, and when they got to the fire station they realized someone had broken in.

Video shows the thieves cutting a hole into the side of the building.

Fire Chief Melvin Martin says the crew could not respond to the fire.

It turns out that fire was at the home of one of their own.

Other responding crews were able to put the fire out.
