Code Enforcement Officers Fight a Fire

Shout out to City of Irving Code Enforcement Officers Jaime Casas and Medhanie Estifanos! 

In early 2023, they were driving back to City Hall when they noticed smoke coming from the bushes near the clock tower in downtown Irving. They quickly pulled over and grabbed a fire extinguisher from their vehicle.
