Two firefighters were stabbed Tuesday night in Jacksonville's Springfield neighborhood and rushed to a hospital for treatment, according to JFRD Union President Randy Wyse. The scene was on Boulevard Street near the intersection of West 10th Street. The fire department said they were responding to a medical call when they were attacked around 10 p.m. According to the Sheriff's Office, both firefighters are expected to be ok and their injuries are not believed to be life-threatening. Mayor Lenny Curry was briefed on the incident. He was in studio Wednesday on "The Morning Show" and said the attack was outrageous. "Firefighters, public safety workers put their lives on the line every day and to have someone else harm them is just ridiculous," Curry said.
