FFD battles flames, cold
Bitter cold made the job more difficult than usual for Farmington firefighters when a car fire Jan. 2 in a garage at the Centennial Apartments.
Firefighters had to deal with a frozen hydrant and work in shifts to give people a chance to warm up as they dealt with the fire, which broke out around 8 p.m.
“Just trying to get a water supply established we had a couple issues with the cold,” fire marshal John Powers said. “It’s just a problem with using water when it’s cold.”
