A Webster firefighter was shot during a call to a fire on Bay Road in Webster.

The firefighter, whose name has not been released, was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital, according to Webster Fire Marshal Rob Boutillier.

He is listed in satisfactory condition, Boutillier said.

Other firefighters were also shot at, but at this point, no other injuries have been reported.

“I’m not aware of anything like this happening in Webster, obviously not a firefighter being fired upon, he said.

Firefighters are currently letting the fire, which has spread to another house, burn until the area has been secured, Boutillier said. It is unknown if occupants are inside the houses.

And no doubt the NRA will call for arming fire fighters.

  1. …and outfitting the firetrucks machine guns.
