CHOCOLATE CAMERAS ARE A FIREFIGHTER’S TOOL

Firefighters in Dunbar, Scotland, are nothing if not dedicated. When Angela Appleby phoned the fire station in a fret because a pet hamster, Fudgie, was on the loose, the engines came racing. Firefighters dismantled Appleby’s stove and gas pipes, launched a chocolate-covered camera probe into crevices and used a vacuum cleaner (they put a sock over the nozzle). All this failed. It took a local SPCA chapter to tease out Fudgie with baited traps.
