BULLHEAD CITY–A local woman was cited and released Monday after she reportedly ran over a fire hose during an active fire scene.
Keri Lee Fisher, 59, was charged with the misdemeanor offense, which could result in a $200 fine and a traffic point violation on her driver’s license.
Bullhead City Police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said Fisher reportedly drove between a Battalion Chief’s truck and another fire truck before running over the fire hose.
The hose was being used to assist in an apartment complex fire in the 2100 block of Riviera Boulevard.
“We would like to remind all citizens to be aware of our first responders and their equipment when they are out on an emergency call,” said Bullhead Fire spokeswoman Lori Viles.” Running over a fire hose can cause serious damage to the hose line and lead to equipment failure.”
