calling a get-function in Zend Framework

This is probably an easy question. If I call Cities::getName(), I get the following error. I'm probably using this the wrong way, but I don't see what's wrong. In Eclipse, the method fetchRow does appear.

Fatal error:  Uncaught exception 'Zend_Controller_Action_Exception'
with message 'Method "fetchRow" does not exist and was not trapped in __call()' in D:\web\test\library\Zend\Controller\Action.php:478

To use fetchRow method you need to extend Zend_Db_Table_Row_Abstract not Zend_Db_Table_Abstract.

Sorry, but that doesn't work. And fetchRow is part of Zend_Db_Table_Abstract.

I solved it using the following code, analogue to the way I fetch the details from accommodations.
<?php
// Cities.php
class Cities extends Zend_Db_Table_Abstract 
{
	protected $_name = 'cities';
	
	public function fetchDetails($id)
	{
		return $this->fetchRow('id = ' . $id);
	}
}
?>
 
<?php
// AccommodationsController.php
class AccommodationsController extends Zend_Controller_Action
{       
        function detailAction()
        {
                $id = (int) $this->_request->getParam('id');
 
                $view = new Accommodations();
                $row = $view->fetchDetails($id);
                
		$city = new Cities();
		$cityrow = $city->fetchDetails($city_id);
		$this->view->city = $cityrow->name;
        }
}
