Visalia Firefighters are cleaning up after their fire station was vandalized overnight.
According to Visalia Police, Fernando Medrano, 40, vandalized Fire Station 54 with a weed eater breaking a window.
The busted window is located in the kitchen and day use area, where firefighters usually eat and rest in between calls.
Fire Captain Christian Ortiz told Your Central Valley, this is the third time, this fire station has been targeted with vandals busting out windows before.
In a previous incident, someone busted the bedroom windows of where firefighters sleep.
“It’s frustrating. We take pride in our apparatus. We take pride in our stations and it’s unfortunate when something like this happens,” Ortiz said.
Police said Medrano, a homeless man, threatened to fight passing motorist after he busted out the fire station window.
Medrano was booked into the Tulare County Jail on one misdemeanor count of vandalism.
