The Grinch might have stolen Christmas, but in Birmingham it was a copper thief that torched a Christmas tree in downtown's Linn Park.

Birmingham police are investigating the early morning incident where copper thieves took decorations off the holiday display and burned down the tree. Officials say the incident occurred around 4 a.m. Thieves took off the lights and used gasoline to separate the plastic from the copper, resulting in the apparent accidental tree torching.
