Phelps Fire Department Sub-Station Temporarily Closed

{Phelps, Kentucky}...The Phelps Fire Department has temporarily closed its sub-station at Majestic after it was burglarized on May 18th, making it the second burglary in less than a month. The burglaries caused the department to lose between $10,000 and $15,000 in stolen items and equipment. The Majestic station is temporarily closed until a security system is in place or a location and money are available to construct a new station in a more secure and populated area. The department is offering a $500 reward for information that leads to the return of the items and the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the thefts.
