A fire hydrant sprung a leak this morning at Third Avenue and 12th Street.
Someone had called 911. Just a matter of waiting and being entertained...
Within, say, 8 minutes, a crew arrived from the Department of Environmental Protection.
The oil screw on top of the hydrant was stripped...
So the crew had to shut off the valve under the street. (I don't really know hydrant-speak...you get the idea.)
And why not?
