Volunteer fire department accused of stealing water

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The San Pasqual Volunteer Fire Department has been dissolved amid allegations of firefighters stealing water.

The County Board of Supervisors said it would terminate its contract with the department Tuesday.

Sheriff's deputies say firefighters used the department's 2,500-gallon water tender to take water from a hydrant in Poway. That water was then delivered to the well of a friend of a department official.

The fire station will remain open under supervision of the County Fire Authority and Cal Fire.
