NEW BEDFORD - Firefighters had their hands full Thursday night while responding to a call on Purchase Street.

New Bedford Fire Chief Michael Gomes tells WBSM News Ladder 4 was responding to a call at 2195 Purchase Street at 7pm. When firefighters arrived, Gomes says a woman at the scene was experiencing some sort of crisis, and was frantically holding onto the firetruck. Eventually, the woman climbed into the cab of Ladder 4, closing the doors and locking herself inside.

The Fire Department had to call New Bedford Police, who were able to talk the woman into unlocking the doors.

The unidentified woman was taken to St. Luke's Hospital for evaluation. No charges are being filed.
