Daily Talker: Is $100 Fine Enough For Blocking Fire Hydrant?

Boston firefighters say it was “inexcusable” that a parked BMW was blocking a fire hydrant near the scene of an 8-alarm fire in East Boston Wednesday night.

Firefighters smashed through the driver and passenger windows to feed a hose through. The hose still had a kink in it, so bystanders helped firefighters lift and bounce the car away from the curb.
