An Augusta business reported six fire extinguishers stolen sometime this month, police said.

Chelsea Thompson, of the Augusta Housing Authority, told deputies the fire extinguishers, with a total value of $200, were taken from a vacant property in the 1600 block of Hunter Street, a Richmond County sheriff’s report said.

An investigation revealed no sign of forced entry.
