BIG SPRING - Four fire hydrants are scheduled to be replaced in Big Spring on Monday.

Residents from Highland Neighborhood in Big Spring complained Monday night about several fire hydrants not working.

Fire officials in Big Dpring say some of the hydrants date back to the 60's, and although they perform annually checkups and maintenance on them the water rusts them.

In total, 4 fire hydrants were malfunctioning, but it will be taken care of on Monday. Officials also say the non-working hydrants did not play a key role in battling the fire.

City officials will meet next week to discuss better communication between the fire and utility department for better maintenance of the fire hydrants.
