ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – A California fire service has ignited some social networking users, but has amused others by posting photos of broken windows from a car parked in front of a mouth of fire. # 39; fire.
In one Twitter post on Tuesday, the Anaheim Fire Department asks, "Have you ever wondered what happened when a car was parked in front of a fire hydrant and a fire broke out? Is a closer parking space worth breaking the windows and paying for quote and towing fees? "
The publication contained four photos showing the rear side windows of the punctured sedan to make room for a fire hose.
The ministry wrote a new message Wednesday after a storm of virtual responses, including that many said the pipe could have passed over the car or that it would not have been to shame the driver by posting the photos, which do not contain any identification information. .
"We posted this incident to illustrate and educate, not to humiliate anyone," he said. "To know why to break the windows instead of going under, on or around the car … it does not work. The pipe needs a straight line out of the fire's mouth. We do not damage property unless they are needed. "
The ministry also explained that laying the hose on top of the car would have caused "even more damage to the bodywork".
Other users had little compassion for the driver, with some claiming that there should be a special fine to slow down the firefighters when every second counted. A man joked, "The owner of this car is totally watered. Well Named.
