FDNY firefighters needed to break through a BMW's windows in order to reach a hydrant during a call late last week.
Crews responded to a three-story building fire in the Bronx at about 3:30 a.m. Friday, the New York Post reports. Once at the scene, they tried to run a hose but found a 2005 5-Series BMW blocking a nearby hydrant.
Firefighters needed to break the front side-door windows and pull the hose through to get to the hydrant. It's a move that upset the car's owner, though.
“They didn’t have to do that!" the car's owner told the Post.
“They (expletive) up my car, and it is going to cost me a bag of money,” he added.
The owner was given a $180 ticket for parking in front of the hydrant. He had been parked there for four days after the battery in the car's key fob had died, according to the Post.
Crews worked for nearly two hours of get the building fire under control. Two firefighters suffered minor injuries, officials told the Post.
