Pumpkin Prank Has Firefighters Fuming In Springwater

Could have been costly

Springwater Fire officials are not impressed with an apparent prank last night on Carson Road.

Twenty firefighters got the call to something burning.

It turned out to be a pumpkin that had been dumped and set ablaze.

The call cost $600 but worse than that, say fire officials, it tied up firefighting resources that could have been needed elsewhere.

They also point out OPP have details of the vehicles the perpetrators used.
