Fire Station #9

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  Fire Station #9

Fire Station No. 9, say the firefighters who work here, has a ghost: Woodard Bloxom, a former captain who died battling a warehouse fire across the street in 1934. The ghost is said to be friendly, and may forewarn the firefighters about impending calls. The men have witnessed cold spots, presences, bay doors that open by themselves, and furniture that is found moved and scattered. One fireman saw the knob on the water fountain turn by itself.

  1. Hello, I am a student that attends Wiggs Middle School as a 7th grader & I’m doing a documentary about the hauntings of Fire station 9, for my project called Hometown Frontiers. I was wondering if you have any pictures or videos that you would like to share with me or that would benefit my project.
