While firefighters are out fighting fires and saving lives, thieves are breaking into their vehicles at the station. It has happened at three DeKalb County fire stations in the past couple of weeks. Firefighters at stations 25, 26 and 7 are frustrated and angry. They found cars in the parking lot with smashed windows and items had been stolen. "I do know there were some very expensive items taken from the cars," said Wyatt Perdomo, President of DeKalb County Professional Firefighters. Sometimes it happens when they are out on a call, sometimes it happens when the crew is sleeping. "If they're breaking into cars while we're asleep in the station, what's next? What's stopping them from breaking into the station with us inside?" said Perdomo.
