ANAHEIM, Calif. – Some people park in front of fire hydrants if they can't find another spot or for easy access, but it's better to avoid the fines and the damage it may cost to your car.

Ever wonder what happens when a car is parked in front of a fire hydrant and a fire breaks out? Is a closer parking spot worth the broken windows and the citation and towing fees to @AnaheimPD? @City_of_Anaheim residents please do not park in fire lanes pic.twitter.com/Q96E4gfTOR— Anaheim Fire & Rescue (@AnaheimFire) February 26, 2019
