But who runs winter?

Give up?

Detroit Fire Department runs are down 12% so far this year compared to 2008, but officials still are on edge about this year's Angels' Night anti-arson patrols.

You can probably get the hed at first glance if you're primed by the lede: "fire runs" is the NP, and "fall" is the verb, not the direct object. But requiring people to read the lede first sort of defeats the purpose of the hed, doesn't it?
