California inmate firefighter steals fire truck, goes on wild ride

A California inmate firefighter left "half a block of destruction" when he stole a firetruck in an apparent Independence Day escape bid and later tried to carjack a second vehicle, officials said. He stole a firefighting engine, drove it through a fence onto the nearby Rack-It Truck Racks property where he rammed one of the business’ parked vehicles, a tree and another fence before the rig jumped a curb and became stuck in a ditch.
