(CNN) -- One of five firefighters being held hostage in Suwanee, Georgia, has been released, Gwinnett County Fire spokesman Capt. Thomas Rutledge said.

The hostage situation occurred after firefighters responded to a residence in Suwanee, Georgia "for some type of medical call," Gwinnett County police spokesman Ed Ritter said.

Police later sent out a request to local TV stations telling them not to send helicopters over the area, in the interest of assuring the safety of those involved in the situation.
