Fire Stations Shut Down After Budget Cuts

ATLANTA (AP) -

Five Atlanta fire stations have reopened after
Saturday's shutdown blamed on staff shortages caused by budget
cuts.

The city's Fire Department temporarily closed five stations
Saturday because 23 firefighters were on furlough and 18 called in
sick, leaving the department understaffed.
