Weather conditions in Florida's Gulf Coast are dangerous due to Hurricane Ian -- and authorities are experiencing issues as rain and wind hammer the area. The Naples Fire and Rescue Department posted a video of a downed power line that sparked flames in the street on Wednesday. No one was hurt but authorities shared the footage to remind the public to stay off roads until the storm passes. The department also shared a video of flood waters pooling in the bay of the fire station. Footage shows firefighters hauling their equipment off the truck and into the fire station. They were also concerned because the truck was smoking. The department said everyone was safe, but they were concerned about their property. They continued to advise residents to stay home.
