CLEVELAND -  A chain reaction accident resulted in two cars smashing into a Cleveland fire station Sunday evening.

At around 5:45 p.m., an Equinox driving on Archwood Avenue hit a Jetta, which then collided with a Buick. The Buick was able to drive safely to a nearby parking lot.

The Jetta was pushed through a traffic light at Pearl Road, and into the front door of Cleveland Fire Station 20, hitting a fire truck. As the firefighters ran outside to see what was happening, the Equinox smashed through the engine apparatus door into the vehicle bay of the station.

Cleveland Fire's Public Information Officer Mike Norman tells Fox 8 that the doors of the station are "totaled."

The drivers of the cars, all male, were taken to hospitals by Cleveland EMS. Their injuries are all minor.

No firefighters were injured, and they will be able to make runs because the station is built so that trucks can leave from either side.

This station was, oddly enough, hit by another car just about a month ago, but on the other side of the station that Sunday's accident.
