Considerate Driver Takes His Burning Truck To Fire Station

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A quick-thinking driver in China whose truck caught fire in transit drove the vehicle to the front door of the local fire station for help.

Video from the fire station in Hefei, Anhui Province, shows the flaming truck approach the station Sunday and about two dozen firefighters coming out of the facility to fight the flames.

The local fire department said it took less than one minute to extinguish the flames."

Forgive my political-incorrectness but a typical Asian driver gets flustered and discombobulated when he has to perform a simple task like changing lanes on a highway  -- it`s exceedingly rare to praise a Chinese driver for his deft handling of a traffic emergency.

If your truck bursts into flames while you are driving down the road, most people would simply jump out and abandon it on the side of the road.

But this quick-thinking and considerate trucker drove it to front door of the fire department, and the firefighters extinguished the fire in less than a minute.

Bravo! Well done!
