CASHION, Oklahoma -- Cashion city councilors were tight-lipped on their reasons for firing 13 of their town's firefighters Thursday night.

The council voted to terminate all but two of its firefighters and those two subsequently quit.

City councilors then hired six new firefighters to take the place of 15 going into the long, hot Fourth of July weekend.

The council members refused to answer questions or make any public statements to the terminated firefighters, Cashion residents or the news media about the shakeup.
