    Default Man makes off with fire truck as firefighters battle flames

    Man makes off with fire truck as firefighters battle flames in Mt. Vernon

    (02/17/06) MOUNT VERNON NY - Police say a man tried to steal a ladder truck while firefighters were battling a four-alarm fire that engulfed a Mount Vernon apartment building Friday.

    Fire officials say flames were blowing out of the third story of the Third Avenue building and quickly spread to the fourth and fifth floors. Flames in the hallways forced firefighters to attack the blaze from the outside. While firefighters were battling the blaze, police say a man tried to drive away with a ladder truck. Police stopped him about a block away and placed him under arrest.
    You need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape.

    It's probably the same guy that started the fire. Good thing the aerial was not up when he tried his stunt.

    The whole Illinois thing is just an alibi. It was actually Nate who stole the rig so him and his other buffy roommates could start their own private FD. LOL
