Firefighters in Camden had to break two windows in a mini-van and snake a hose through to fire hydrant.

In a video posted to YouTube by NJ.com, you can see the result.

I’m sure the jackass who parked there told him/herself that the chances of a fire were low, but oh, how wrong they were.

The firefighters were identified by NJ.com as being from Camden Fire Officials Local 2578. The fire was on Saturday, January 25th.

Imagine the driver’s surprise when they came out and saw their smashed windows with a hose run through their front seat. Here’s hoping that they got a ticket, too. How hard is it to NOT park in front of a fire hydrant? It’s one of the first things you learn in drivers ed.

Anyway, let that video serve as a warning next time you think you can get away with illegally parking in front of a hydrant.
