Firefighters at a Cleveland fire station are dealing with an ongoing bed bug problem.
The bed bugs were first reported at Fire Station 40 on St. Clair Ave. in September. Crews were called in to handle the situation, but the bugs resurfaced again this week.
The city released the following statement on Wednesday:
“The City of Cleveland takes the health and safety of all employees and personnel seriously, including the possibility of bed bugs at a fire station. Due to the transient nature of emergency response personnel, bed bugs can become a frequent issue; however, it is an issue that the city deals with promptly. In fact, the city has a contract with a bed bug specialist to handle such situations if they arise.“
