Fire house closes temporarily

Firefighters, their families and some city officials protest the temporary closure of a fire house.

The city closed Lexington Fire Station Number Four, on Saturday, to save money in overtime.

Officials claim the move will help them avoid layoffs and tax hikes, but opponents say it's a big safety risk.

The city council will hold an emergency meeting on the closures Tuesday afternoon.
