According to a post on the Smith Mills Fire Department Facebook page, someone poured sugar into a generator mounted on the department's first-out engine.
It says with that unit down, crews cannot light-up scenes or use electric tools that are needed in emergency situations.
The department is asking anyone with information to contact the Henderson County Sheriff's Department at (270) 826-2713.
