Burglar hits Chicago firehouse kitchen

CHICAGO, July 1 (UPI) -- Chicago firefighters said someone broke into a firehouse while they were away on a call and stole food from a communal locker.

Fire Lt. Frank Burens said firefighters were away from the Engine 26 house at about 9 p.m. Tuesday on a bogus call about a crash on an expressway and they returned to find a rear window had been forced open and the screen removed, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Thursday.

Burens said nothing was taken except the food the firefighters had planned to make for dinner.

Officials said previous firehouse burglaries have been far costlier.

"They've taken TVs, VCRs, gone through lockers, grabbed personal items," Fire Department spokesman Joe Roccasalva said.
