Florida zoo elephants cool off with help from firefighters: PHOTOS

Florida is in for yet another steamy summer – but us humans aren't the only ones feeling the heat. On Tuesday, Florida firefighters helped a zoo keep their elephants cool in the coolest way.  

According to an Instagram post, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Engine 57 participated in Zoo Miami's annual elephant hose enrichment activity. The purpose of this activity is to help the elephants cool down and lower their body temperature.
