A man who stole a 4WD fire truck has led WA police on a wild off-road chase crashing through more than 20 farm fences before he rolled the vehicle and was arrested.

Police say the Toyota Landcruiser was stolen from a volunteer fire captain in Boddington, south of Perth.

Officers spotted the 4WD travelling along the Pinjarra to Williams Road and gave chase when the 28-year-old driver refused to stop.

The driver sped through Dwellingup before steering the stolen vehicle onto minor roads, bush and farm tracks, and paddocks.

"The car rammed through numerous fence lines (estimated to be around 20-30), causing significant damage. Lengths of fencing were being dragged along by the vehicle as it drove off from police,'' police said.

"The driver was eventually apprehended when the car rolled in a creek line. The driver attempted to run from the vehicle, but was apprehended quickly by police.''

Video footage captured from a police chopper shows wire from the fencing being dragged along by the stolen vehicle.

At one point a small fire started after grass caught underneath the vehicle was set alight.

The driver eventually rolled the 4WD after attempting to smash through one fence too many.

The man jumped out of the car and tried to run away on foot, but was soon pinned to the ground by several police officers.

The driver was charged with stealing a motor vehicle, reckless driving, failing to stop, no authority to drive and criminal damage.
