EARLIER: Pemberton Police are looking for information surrounding the stealing of a ute filled with fire fighting equipment.

The 2010 Toyota Landcruiser utility was stolen at around 2am on Sunday October 1st, plastered with the "Springfield" fire brigade livery.

The utility was at the Springfield Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade shed, on the corner of Vasse Highway and Green Road in Pemberton.

The rear tray was located abandoned and damaged in bushland inside the Greater Beedelup National Park.

Items were also stolen from the larger fire appliance inside the shed.

Acting Sergeant Kirk Hobson, Officer in Charge of Pemberton Police, said this incident is devastating for the local community.

“We have a team of highly committed and dedicated volunteers who put themselves in harm’s way to protect the local community, and to see this happen to them is disappointing.

“Whoever stole the vehicle has put the local community at risk, and have a complete disregard for the safety of the community.
