    EVEN ODDER NEWS: Houston firefighter uses beer to extinguish burning truck

    bladdy waste if you ask me

    AN off-duty firefighter who came to aid of a truckie whose vehicle had caught fire has used the cargo load of beer to douse the flames.

    Houston Fire Department Captain Craig Moreau was driving to Austin with his wife when he saw the flames coming from the truck and stopped to help.

    The truck's brakes had overheated, sparking the fire, Houston's News92fm reports.

    "We pulled over to help, and got to him as he was starting to spray his tiny extinguisher from the outside of the tire. The flames were coming from the inside, so I took the extinguisher from him and crawled under the truck. The rest of the extinguisher knocked down the flames, but it quickly re-ignited," Moreau wrote on his Facebook page.

    "I asked him what was inside and he said BEER, its all BEER.

    "Just then, the inside tire exploded. I told him to open it up and hand me the beers as fast as he could. I shook them up, and popped a top one at a time until the fire was out and the brakes were cool. Thankfully they were tall-boys.

    "I couldn't help but laugh at the irony of it all, he was so shaken up that the humor escaped him.

    "Had he been carrying anything other than easy to dispense liquids I am sure the truck would have burned to the ground."

    Well done, sir! (edit, Fucking NOT!)
