After investigating an abandoned house in Waterbury, Connecticut, on Tuesday, four firefighters went to the truck and suddenly began to itch like crazy.

It was then realized they were covered in fleas from head to toe. They were taken to hospital where he robbed a back parking lot, then down and blotted out the evidence against flea diseases like bubonic plague.

The infestation was so bad the department got the fire truck out of service until an exterminator killed all the fleas on board. The firefighters were treated for fleabites and are back at work.
