SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. -- It was a sad day for Sun Prairie Volunteer Fire Department after their unofficial mascot, "Hydro" the Dalmatian, passed away 

This past weekend, Hydro got into an accident with a vehicle and did not survive his injuries. 

The fire department posted on Facebook to announce the sad news:

"Yesterday, our unofficial mascot Hydro got into an accident with a motor vehicle. Unfortunately, today he crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Many of you have probably seen and petted him the last few years during parades, and he was always a welcome sight at our pubic education events. To state the obvious, he was a very good dog and mascot. Hydro will certainly be missed around the firehouse."

Hydro was a common sight at parades and other community events.

The fire department told WISC-TV that Hydro lived with four kids.
