Ever wonder how firefighters and other first-responders are able to gain access to secure areas in a large commercial building when responding to an emergency call? The answer: They have a key to an accessible box, known as a Knox Box, that contains copies of the building’s keys. One such box was damaged at a building in the 2500 block of Oakton Street between 5 p.m. Friday and 7 a.m. yesterday.
