ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) — Police say four central Pennsylvania volunteer firefighters called in five false alarms earlier this year because they enjoyed the thrill of riding in fire trucks.

The Logan Township Volunteer Fire Department has suspended the men and police have charged them with making the false alarms.

Online court records don’t list attorneys for the men.

Police believe the men are responsible only for the five alarms, but they say even one is too many.

The suspects were all probationary members with fewer than 90 days of service with the fire department.

They face a preliminary hearing May 26.

The Associated Press is not listing their names because online court records were incomplete Tuesday.
