Walthourville Fire Department Update

Christmas came early for some Coastal Empire firefighters. As we told you last week, someone stole $70,000 worth of lifesaving equipment from the Walthourville Fire Department in Liberty County.

Now a fire safety equipment company has loaned them demo gear until their insurance company replaces what was taken. Until now, other local departments have been backing up Walthourville's calls.

Meanwhile, the search for the culprits continues. If you have any information about the theft, call the Walthourville City Hall or your local police department.
