WASILLA, Alaska - The Wasilla headquarters of two state wildfire suppression crews has been burglarized, again.

According to KTUU-TV (, state Division of Forestry officials say personal items and state equipment was stolen last weekend, including computers and at least one vehicle.

The building is a home base for the Pioneer Peak Hot Shots crew who are fighting Utah wildfires. The Gannett Glacier crew recently returned from the fire lines in Fairbanks.

It's not the first time the building has been targeted by thieves. In 2009, vandals broke in and trashed the building, stole five vehicles and damaged a few other parked cars.
