VIDEO: Two Fishers firefighters have discovered a way to honor America and their fellow first responders, while also showing off their artistic side and making a little extra money on the side. Firefighters Scott Carr and Rob Demlow are making American flags completely out of old firehoses. "Fire departments around [the country], when a section of [fire]hose goes bad, whether it's in a fire or during training, they're just taking them off the truck and throwing them away," Carr said. "We had some hose lying around the firehouse getting ready to go in the dumpster. 'What if we can do something with this firehose to make a piece of artwork symbolizing the flag?'" The end result was a beautiful, unique piece of art. "When we started this, it started as a fun hobby and blossomed into this business that's starting to take off and do well," Carr said, with neither firefighter having any form of artistic background.
