Cleared Snow Around Hydrant Aids Springwater Fire During Chimney Blaze

Springwater Fire is giving a shout-out to some people in a Hillsdale neighbourhood for digging snow out from around a fire hydrant.

Crews say they were a vital part in saving their neighbours house during a chimney fire on Mill Street Friday morning.

Damage was kept to about $5,000.

Fire Chief Jeff Kirk praised the efforts of those who took the time to dig the snow.

He says anyone with a hydrant in front of their home should try to have at least three feet of snow cleared from all around it.
