"Four Savannah firefighters escaped serious injury tonight when their fire engine was struck by a bullet," says a spokesman for Savannah Fire & Emergency Services.
"The firefighters were returning to their station just before 6 p.m. when a bullet shattered the windshield of their fire engine," the spokesman says.
"The firefighters had just cleared up from a call assisting a citizen on Deerfield Rd. with an unusual odor in her home. They were traveling north on White Bluff Rd. just south of Wilshire Blvd. when the bullet struck the driver's side of the windshield," the spokesman says.
"The bullet ricocheted against the inside of the windshield and landed on the machine's dashboard. Two firefighters were hit with shattered glass but did not require medical treatment."
Savannah-Chatham Metro Police detectives are investigating the incident.
