Hydrants buried under snow hamper fire efforts in Berks
Fire hydrants buried under the snow posed problems for firefighters battling a house fire in Berks Sunday.
The fire broke out around 4 p.m. at 4800 Deborah Drive in Exeter Township.
Crews needed about 1200 feet of hose to get water from the tanker trucks because firefighters said the hydrants were buried under the snow.
A man and his two pets managed to get out safely.
