Lexington firefighters haven't had much time for rest over the past couple of days.

They said on Tuesday, they made at least 45 water runs.

They've been on 60 pipe-related incidents so far today.

On top of that, fire crews said they had ten runs related to the cold weather, ranging from people falling to carbon monoxide concerns.

Two house fires have also occurred in the past three days due to people using blow torches to try to thaw their pipes.

The fire department encourages everyone to take advice from a plumber on the best way to thaw pipes safely.
