— Anaheim Fire and Rescue tweeted on Tuesday some alarming photos to remind drivers to never park in front of a hydrant.

"Ever wonder what happens when a car is parked in front of a fire hydrant and a fire breaks out? Is a closer parking spot worth the broken windows and the citation and towing fees? Please do not park in fire lanes," the Anaheim, Ca. department tweeted.

The photos showed a fat fire hose stretched through the broken windows of a silver sedan.
