California firefighters fan flames with broken window post

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — 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 Wednesday, 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.”

Four photos show the sedan’s rear side windows busted out to make way for a fire hose.

In response to some who said the hose could have gone over the car, the department said the hose needs to be as straight as possible and they “do not damage property unless it is needed.”

Others had little sympathy for the driver, with one joking: “The owner of that car is totally hosed. Rightfully.”
