NORTH HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA.com) — North Hollywood Ice Company has been providing ice to residents since 1929, and this heat wave is just increasing business.

“It’s crazy right now, so we are trying to keep up,” said Edwin Cubis, dispatcher at North Hollywood Ice.

Cubis told CBS2’s Louisa Hodge the company’s phone has been ringing constantly.

“We do restaurants, bars, liquor stores. You name it, we do it,” he said.

Workers have been spending the night bagging the ice because the heat can make the ice blocks stick together.

The ice bags are then shipped to hundreds of customers.

“We have at least a hundred tons, at least a hundred tons, ready to go out,” Cubis said. “We go and save the day.”
