Two Albany firefighters were taken to the hospital after someone allegedly threw a flash grenade into their truck as they were responding to a call on Friday.

Firefighters tell us the M-80 type explosive was thrown into the cab of the truck and landed between the two men. Both were treated and released from Albany Medical Center for ringing in the ears.

Right now it's unclear where the incident happened. Firefighters tell us the men will not be into work right away.
