Toledo Fire Dept. on high alert after attacks - Toledo Blade
The Toledo Fire Department urged firehouses across the city to keep their doors locked and remain extra vigilant Friday, after authorities confirmed the fourth attack on a fire station this week.
Officials discovered a bullet mark on a fire truck’s door Friday morning. The truck was parked at Station 18 on Lewis Avenue in West Toledo, the same firehouse where firefighters found a burning package the day before.
On Wednesday afternoon, shots were reportedly fired outside two other fire stations: Station 9 in South Toledo and Station 6 in East Toledo. A bullet pierced a glass garage door at Station 6 on Starr Avenue.
No one was hurt in any of the incidents.
The latest bullet mark to be reported had been spotted by a firefighter on Tuesday, but he did not realize at the time what it was, Fire Chief Luis Santiago said Friday. The mark, on the truck’s driver’s-side door, was not there a week ago, the chief said.
