Volunteer fire department burglarized for the second time

For the second time in less than one month, the Phelps Volunteer Fire and Rescue Station has been burglarized.

Nearly 15,000 dollars of lifesaving equipment was stolen from the Majestic sub-station of the Phelps Fire Department.

Ronald Vaughan has dedicated his last 52 years working at the Phelps Volunteer Fire Department.

But Vaughan and his crew could not prepare for what they found for the second time in three weeks.

Workers say they're still in shock that these selfish crimes happened to firefighters who selflessly volunteer their time to save lives.
