TOLEDO, Ohio -- An Ohio tattoo parlor has received major damage after an antique fire truck smashed into the building.

The Toledo Fire and Rescue Department said the truck crashed into Infinite Art Tattoo Saturday morning. Shop owner Brian "Monk" Taylor told the Toledo Blade (http://bit.ly/2rgJ27e ) a quick-thinking tattoo artist pulled a client away from the flying debris.

No one was injured in the crash.

Fire dispatchers said the vehicle was a part of the Toledo Fire Museum. Museum representatives were unavailable for comment.

Taylor said shop operations will continue in parts of the building not damaged by the crash.

It is unclear why the crash occurred. The accident is still under investigation.
