WATCH: Police chased a stolen firetruck across four Northern #California counties during a wild high-speed pursuit that lasted nearly two hours and ended with two suspects under arrest.
Officials say the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District truck worth about $1 million was taken from the scene of a small grass fire Saturday.
The truck reached 70 mph as it sped about 85 miles through #Sacramento, #Placer, #Yuba and #Butte counties.
It was eventually stopped on State Route 70 near Lake Oroville and a man and a woman were arrested. Both took turns driving, and are suspected of having been under the influence of drugs, alcohol or both. No other details about the suspects were available.
Metro Fire spokesman Capt. Chris Vestal tells the Sacramento Bee that the truck has to be towed back for extensive repairs.
