FORDHAM HEIGHTS, the Bronx (PIX11) — Video from the Bronx shows an ice-coated pickup truck parked on a street as a fire hydrant spewed water out on Christmas Eve.
The truck was parked near Ryer Avenue and Field Place, according to the Citizen App post. The video also shows iced-over tree branches and a slick roadway. Video shot from closer up shows icicles hanging from the truck.

PIX11 reached out to the FDNY regarding the hydrant. A spokesperson referred PIX11 News to the DEP. PIX11 News has not yet heard back from the department.
