Maybe he was fighting fire with ice

Fire A Leon County fire chief has been arrested after being caught with two ice-makers that he allegedly confessed to stealing.

Brian McEckron (left), chief of the Lake Jackson Volunteer FD, will be fired from his post, officials said to the Tallahassee Democrat.

Police say McEckron stole a $1,500 ice-maker from a city water facility and was busted when a maintenance worker saw the machine stashed under a tarp on McEckron's property. The fire chief then confessed to stealing another ice-maker valued at $300, police said.

It beats me as to what a fire chief would be doing with two industrial-grade ice machines. Any guesses?
