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.
