Two Firefighters have been reported to have sustained serious injuries and are currently in medical care after being attacked.

A man beat the two firefighters with blunt objects when they responded to put out an RV fire in Linwood Township. After attacking the firefighters, the man climbed atop the burning roof arming himself with a knife. He refused to get down from the roof until local deputies shot him down with bean bag rounds. Once being fired upon, he jumped down from the roof and attempted to flee, before being arrested.

Currently authorities are unsure what caused the man to act so erratically.
