Firetruck stolen in Toronto, leads police on high-speed chase
TORONTO — A man stole a Toronto fire department truck Monday, turned on the flashing lights and siren, and led police on a wild chase into the countryside.
"I can't ever remember a fire truck being stolen before," said Sean Pearce, an executive officer with the Toronto fire department.
"We run about 300,000 calls each year. It just doesn't happen. This is a real oddball for us."
