Firefighters in Nelson targeted by Burglars whilst they responded to an emergency call
Saturday 23rd June | by Cop(ex) | Twitter: @ES_Humour |
When Firefighters returned to their station in the early hours of the morning, they were met with the aftermath of a burglary.
The Burglar(s) carried out their vile act between the hours of 0030 and 0500 according to sources from the Station. During the break-in, most of the rooms and equipment were ransacked according to Police.
Sgt Kathryn Mather, of Lancashire Police, told reporters that it was “a disgraceful crime”.
Two engines from the station responded to a fire in Whitehall Street where the second floor of an end terraced property was in flames.
Together, with crews from Colne and Hyndburn, they used breathing apparatus, hose reels, triple extension ladders and a thermal imaging camera to put the fire out.
If ever a contrast was needed in relation to the best that humanity has to offer Vs the worst that humanity has to offer, then this is a prime example.
How deep in the cess pool must you be swimming to specifically target men and women who would give their own life up in order to save yours?
Lets hope that these individuals are caught and that their faces are made public so that we can all see a prime example of what not to aspire to.
During the burglary, the criminals stole wallets, watches and other personal items belong to the Firefighters.
If you know anything about this vile crime, then call Crime Stoppers anonymously on: 0800 555 111.
Needless to say, that the individuals behind the crime will be ‘recognised’ for their stupidity in the next issue of our subscriber-only digital magazine.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
