    Firefighter's Solution in Boston

    This really made me smile... Check out the picture. Emergency service folks have a tough enough time as it is.... creative solution!

    During a fire in East Boston Wednesday night, firefighters ran into a problem: someone had a parked a BMW in front of a nearby hydrant. The eight-alarm fire was threatening the entire neighborhood, and the firefighters controlling the blaze needed more water. So they punched out the windows and snaked a 4-inch hose from the hydrant, through the windows and back out to an engine pumping water to the firefighters. While “some people find humor in it,” said a Boston Fire Department official, “it’s really a serious situation.” To drive the point home, an officer then ticketed the vehicle with a $100 fine. This morning, the BMW is no longer there. And that’s why you never park in front of a fire hydrant.

    CP, I saw that on the news the day it happened and it was a BRAND NEW BMW. Not sure what people are thinking. The fire department really had to do what they had to. Maybe it will make people think.
