Bowling Green Fire Department purchases equipment for man stranded with bike

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- Fighting fires and repairing bicycles. It’s all in a day’s work for members of the Bowling Green Fire Department.

According to a Wednesday post on the department’s Facebook page, fire dispatch received calls of a person lying beside a building. When Bowling Green Fire Department Engine 2 arrived on the scene, they found a citizen whose bicycle had a flat tire. Officials say, he was trying to get to a tire shop for repairs, but his bad back forced him to rest every few minutes.

The firefighters purchased the equipment and repaired his tire, all while working to get him and his dog rehydrated.
