Alton Fire Chief Sam Barton said this truck from Mountain View Oil Company, driven by Roy L. Renegar, was backing into the driveway at a residence on Andrews Street in Alton Jan. 2, when the front bumper of the truck caught a city fire hydrant plug and pulled it open causing a large amount of cold water to spill into the street. The incident occurred about 11:30 a.m. The temperature was about 20 degrees. Barton said no one was injured in the incident and no charges were filed.
