Fire department lost keys
PHOENIX, ARIZONA- Hundreds of keys can't be accounted for, for lock boxes that allow firefighters to get into businesses and other locations in case of fire.
The Phoenix Deputy Chief blames it on poor record-keeping over the past 15 years.
There are 850 keys missing and the department says there's no indication the keys were used for foul play.
The keys are kept in fire engines and other vehicles plus with members of the department so firefighters don't have to break into buildings to gain access.
So, the city set aside $50,000 to replace the mechanisms of 9,000 lock boxes at area businesses to fix the issue.
