Durham Firefighters Recover Stolen Antique Bell

Posted March 8, 2005

— An antique fire bell is back where it belongs.

Thieves stole the bell off an old pumper in Durham in November. On Tuesday, firefighters at fire station No. 6 found a cardboard box outside with the bell inside.

Investigators believe a collector or fire buff might have swiped it, but they do not have any suspects.

The antique bell may be restored and displayed in the American Tobacco complex.
