Mitchell Facing Fire Hydrant Dilemma

The City of Mitchell is facing a potential public safety crisis involving fire hydrants.

Officials were alerted to it last fall when a woman's home burned down after firefighters couldn't get water from nearby hydrants.

Officials say they simply don't know which of the city's 207 hydrants work.

The Indiana State Fire Marshal's Office is helping the city address the issue.
