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.

    I worked at fire station 9 on numerous occasions during my tenure. 1978-2003.
    I was not stationed there but would suitcase as an extra or and fill in when a stationed FF was on vac or sick. Late one night I remember working out in the basement. I was on the bench press doing some reps when I heard what I thought was one of the guys footsteps coming down wooden steps and step on the cemented foundation to join or talk to me. I finished my last few reps, put the bar back against the rest and sat up. I
    turned around to where the steps were located to see who had come down. I saw no one. The basement wasn’t very big maybe 15’x20′. I sat quiet for a minute
    wondering, What The? It had only been a few seconds from when I heard the footsteps to when I finished my reps, sat up and turned around. I would have heard someone going back up the stairs if indeed someone was trying to prank me.

    On another occasion (different night) we were asleep in the 2nd floor bedroom. There were only 3 of us and I was always last to hit the sack. I got in bed and about an hour later I hear footsteps coming up the wooden stairway. I sat up and looked at the one door to the bedroom expecting someone to come in. A second later the camode flushes by itself and I’m up investigating. The other two old timers still asleep and snoring. I didn’t find or see anyone when I went down to the kitchen or the bathroom. Got back in bed and a few minutes later we had a run come in.
