A few years ago, a local ad agency placed fire extinguishers with directions attached for the American Red Cross in Southeastern Wisconsin around Downtown.

This weekend, I noticed spray painted extinguishers on columns and bridges in Downtown’s Westown neighborhood. 

My gut says it's a creative use of promotional, guerrilla graffiti.  But, I might be wrong.  Maybe they're just vandalism.  

So, I’ll use the power of our readership to find the answer.  Anyone seen these?  Thoughts, comments?  Use the Talkbacks to respond.
