Seems like that fire hydrant...

Would be kind of important.

As the photos of the news van started getting passed around, people were pretty upset.

@fox25news what do you have to say about your news van blocking the fire hydrant? Don't just ignore it and act like it didn't happen

Until My FOX Boston issued a statement on their website about the photos, saying it was all a misunderstanding.

"Earlier today at the scene of a fire, the driver of one of our news vehicles was instructed by authorities where to park. That news vehicle was moved to another location a short time later."

According to Jalopnik, the fire they were covering was 5-alarm church fire in Boston. Here's an aerial shot of it from FOX 25's helicopter.
