Rat firefighter took $25,000 from kids toy fund

California firefighters have some of the best union benefits in America.

That apparently wasn’t enough for one Bay Area firefighter. She has been arrested on suspicion of stealing thousands of dollars from a bank account that supports an annual toy drive for thousands of disadvantaged youths, authorities said.

Holly Kaye Nelson, 53, of Cloverdale, is charged with two counts of felony grand theft.
