In response to concerns raised by officials of the Blanchester-Marion Township Fire District, three police officers, three police cruisers and one tow truck were detailed to the Friday night football game to enforce fire lane parking regulations at Blanchester High School, according to Police Chief Scott Reinbolt.

He said that one vehicle was towed from a fire lane and the vehicle operator cited.
