Two Florida firefighters were stabbed while on a call late Tuesday. The incident happened at about 10 p.m. in Jacksonville's Springfield neighborhood, WJXT-TV reports.
According to the fire department, the firefighters were responding to a medical emergency in the area when they were attacked.
They were taken to the hospital, and their injuries were not thought to be life-threatening. Details about how and why the firefighters were attacked have not been released.
Police have a suspect in custody, and officials said there is no threat to the public.
"Firefighters, public safety workers put their lives on the line every day and to have someone else harm them is just ridiculous," Mayor Lenny Curry told WJXT.
