This time of year California firefighters are usually fighting wildfires, not hosing down elephants. However, it's been so hot and humid in Oakland this week that the firefighters at Station 28 got a bizarre call.
“Would you please come and provide the elephants with a nice, cool shower?”
And they sure did.
The elephants appeared to enjoy the relief from the heat, as it's not easy to cool down when you weigh six tons.
