It was the 5th straight day of triple-digit temperatures in El Paso, Saturday.
This summer, the heat's already being blamed for 3 deaths.
That is even more reason why El Pasoans were looking for any way to stay out of the sun and cool.
The El Paso Fire Department says to avoid overheating, drink lots of water and stay in the shade.
Firefighters have responded to at least 50 heat-related emergency calls this summer.
