The heat has been brutal today, but imagine spending time outside in front of a deep fryer.
That's what Charlie Abiad was doing.
He's a food vendor in the city.
"It's pretty hot in there, it's probably about 150, 160 in there," he said.
Abiad says he usually has his food cart downtown shortly before 10 am each day, and works until about 2:30 in the afternoon.
Abiad says staying hydrated in heat like this is key.
