Firefighters Smash New BMW to Get To Hydrant

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON, MA - The man who parked his 2 day-old BMW in front of a fire hydrant got a $100 ticket, two smashed windows and a dent in his door.

CBS Boston reports, firefighters had to smash the windows and thread the fire hose through the car to get to the hydrant.

They say the fire grew to 8 alarms before they were able to get it under control. 

"He was mad," said Rafael Henriquez, who is friends with the car's owner. He watched as firefighters busted through the windows to hook their hose onto the hydrant.

WBZ-TV interviewed Rafael Henriquez, a friend of the car's owner who said, "I wanted to cry for him... Of course he brought that on himself."

They report the hose still had a kink in it even after threading it through the car so bystanders helped firefighters lift and bounce the car away from the curb.
