Four Lexington fire stations are closed Christmas Day.
But it's not so the firefighters can spend time with their families--it's to save money.
The Urban County Goverment is looking to cut more than 12 million dollars in it's budget.
One of the many cost saving initiatives is inacting "rolling brownouts" at local fire stations.
On the days fire stations are closed, other fire companies will pick up their slack.
Some say that can make their work day a bit challenging.
