Captain Craig Moreau was driving back home from Austin with his wife when he noticed smoke pouring out of an 18-wheeler on the side of the road. Without a second thought, the Houston firefighter stopped to help. Obviously, Captain Moreau didn't have a fire hose handy to put out the brake fire, so he got creative, and used the truck's contents to fight the flames. He asked the driver, "what have you got in here?" and the driver said, "It's beer! It's all beer." So, the driver, the Captain, and his wife all started shaking cans and spraying them on the flames until the fire went out. Captain Moreau said, "It's in [my] nature to help folks, but this is the first time that I've done it with beer." Most people hate to see a good beer go to waste, but even the Fire Chief was impressed with Captain Moreau's quick thinking. He said, "I support the extinguishment of the fire, no matter what the cost."
