A Marion woman was charged with attempted felony assault after firing a gun at a firefighter Saturday morning.

It happened in the 400 block of East Mark Street in Marion around 5:40 a.m. Saturday.

Marion fire officials said firefighters were responding to a report of an unauthorized burn.

They said Sheila J. Markley became combative after they told her they were going to put the fire out because it was not in compliance with burning standards. Firefighters said Markley stepped in front of the hose and pulled out a handgun and then fired. No one was hit.

The firefighters then moved to a safe location and called for police.

Police officers took Markley into custody. She is scheduled to appear in court Monday morning.
