Fire Dept. to residents: Clear snow from hydrants, dryer vents

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

The Saginaw Fire Department is asking residents who are able to clear snow away from nearby fire hydrants and remove snow build-up that may be blocking dryer vents.

The department is also asking people not to use ovens or stove-top burners as a source of home heating, and not to use blow torches or any other flame source to thaw frozen water pipes.

On a related note, residents are urged to clear snow and ice away from furnace air intakes.

Farther north, in Au Gres, the city is asking water customers to keep water running at a low stream through one faucet at all times to prevent pipe freezes. Water bills for city residents and those residents in Au Gres Township will be adjusted later.
