Firefighters face all kinds of emergencies. Sometimes it might be a blaze in a high-rise or a car crash, and then sometimes, it might be a fire in a porta potty.
That's what Beacon firefighters found on a call Thursday morning at a construction site on Hastings Drive for Highland Hospital, said Beacon Fire Chief Gary Van Voorhis.
Firefighters found a porta potty smoking when they arrived at the large construction site: "The employees had already put out most of the fire with snow and water," he said.
But, the fire was no laughing matter, he added with a construction trailer sitting nearby and lots of equipment with plenty of gasoline, so firefighters went to work to make sure all the flames were out.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
