An Indianapolis motorist learned the hard way that active fire scenesespecially ones with unfurled hoses—aren't the best places to park and should best be avoided, especially 

While crews were responding to a blaze Saturday, a vehicle decided to get a little too close to the action. So close, in fact, that the driver was parked the vehicle over a hose being used to put out the flames. 

The Indianapolis Fire Department posted a photo of the inconsiderate and dangerous situation to social media. The driver also was ticketed and forced to stay at the scene.

"Once fireground Ops were complete & supply lines no longer needed, the hose was drained he was able to move his car," the department wrote, adding #SupplyLinesAreLifeLines to the post. "Don't Drive Over Hose."
