Firefighters Attacked

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Tulsa police say firefighters responding to a medical call were attacked and assaulted.

Fire Capt. Michael Baker says the firefighters suffered only minor injuries in the attack about 11:30 p.m. Sunday and each one finished the shift that ended at 8 a.m. Monday.

Police say the crew was attacked by six or seven people in their late teens to early 20s when they arrived at the home in northeast Tulsa where a woman was having trouble breathing.

Police say the attackers complained the firefighters were too slow in arriving.

The group ran from the scene as police arrived and Officer Leland Ashley says no arrests have been made.

Another fire crew and an ambulance crew treated the woman who was taken to a Tulsa hospital in serious condition.
