Fire­fight­ers fan flames with win­dow

The Tribune (SLO) - - Local -


A Cal­i­for­nia fire depart­ment en­flamed some so­cial me­dia users but amused oth­ers by post­ing pic­tures of the busted-out win­dows of a car parked in front of a fire hy­drant.

In a Twit­ter post Tues­day , the Ana­heim Fire Depart­ment asks: “Ever won­der what hap­pens when a car is parked in front of a fire hy­drant and a fire breaks out? Is a closer park­ing spot worth the bro­ken win­dows and the ci­ta­tion and tow­ing fees?”

The post in­cluded four pho­tos show­ing the sedan’s rear side win­dows busted out to make way for a fire hose.

The depart­ment penned a new post Wed­nes­day af­ter a vir­tual firestorm of re­sponses, in­clud­ing many say­ing the hose could have gone over the car, or that the depart­ment shouldn’t have shamed the driver by post­ing the pho­tos, which don’t in­clude any iden­ti­fy­ing in­for­ma­tion.
