A prisoner escaped from a state prison in San Diego by stealing the prison fire engine on New Year's Eve and he's still on the lam. Thomas Kelly was serving time for stealing cars and worked as a firefighter in the prison near the border with Mexico. Kelly was discovered missing Sunday night during a head count. Authorities say about the same time sheriff's deputies saw a fire engine being driven erratically about ten miles from the prison. When they stopped the truck, the driver fled.
