A reminder from Ottawa Fire to shovel out any hydrants near you after crews had to dig one outof the snow and ice in order to fight a blaze on Columbus Avenue Saturday morning.
Firefighters were called around 8:16 a.m. and found smoke coming out of a basement unit.

According to the City of Ottawa, if a fire hydrant is located on your property, the homeowner is responsible for making sure nothing on the land obstructs access to it.
