Texas Firefighter Uses Beer to Put Out Tire Blaze

Thinkstock

Whatever works when it comes to fighting fires.

An off-duty Houston firefighter has used beer to extinguish a tire fire on a truck hauling a load of the brew.

Capt. Craig Moreau and his wife on Monday night were driving home after a trip to Austin when they came upon an 18-wheeler on fire. Moreau and the trucker, whose rig had brake problems that started the tire on fire, tried using a small extinguisher.

Moreau says he thought the fire was out, but then crawled under the rig and the blaze had flared up.

The firefighter then asked the driver what he was hauling — and the answer was beer.

Both men began shaking and spraying cans of beer on the blaze and put out the fire.

Nobody was hurt.
