MARGATE, Fla. - Firefighters with the Margate-Coconut Creek Fire Department came to the rescue of a Margate woman Wednesday who needed help with her leaking roof.

Authorities said the firefighters heard that Marie Griffin had come to Margate City Hall looking for assistance to fix her roof.

Authorities said Griffin still needs a new roof for her trailer, but the firefighters secured a tarp over the roof for the time being to keep Griffin and her dog dry.
