Looks like someone had a spark of inspiration.

Pop quiz hotshot. There's a truck on fire in the middle of a forest road with no water around for miles. What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?

Sorry for shouting. We just really want to put this fire out.

One local Fire Captain used his noggin when recently faced with that exact dangerous dilemma and so called in an aerial fire drop which successfully took care of the flaming fire in question.

Watch as the pilot expertly douses the damaged truck with his load and, here at JOE HQ, we're just just hoping that everyone had cleared the area before the soaking, otherwise we might be looking at bizarre headlines along the lines of "Man Drowns In Tragic Fire Accident" which just makes no sense whatsoever.
