Firefighter Uses Beer To Put Out 18-Wheeler Truck Fire

By Robert Paul Reyes

 

"When a Houston firefighter came across an 18-wheeler with smoke pouring out of it on Texas 71, he didn`t have any water with him because it was his day off.

He got creative.

During a trip back from Austin with his wife, Capt. Craig Moreau was able to assist a truck driver putting out a brake fire on his vehicle by using the truck`s cargo -- Coors Banquet beer."

A firefighter, like a cop, is always on duty and when Capt. Craig Moreau was driving his personal vehicle he saw an 18-wheeler with smoke pouring out of it, he stopped.

Fortunately, the truck`s cargo was Coors Banquet beer, the truck driver, the firefighter and his wife, poured cold ones on the fire until it was extinguished.

There`s more than one way to skin a cat, and there`s more than one way to put out a fire. Kudos to the quick-thinking firefighter!
