Another Reason to Always Have Beer in the Car

Post by Turkeytop » Thu Sep 26, 2019 8:46 pm

Bottoms up, fire’s out: German man douses fire with beer


BERLIN (AP) — A German motorist is being credited for his quick thinking after his engine caught fire on the Autobahn. He turned to a slightly different foam extinguisher to douse the flames: bottles of beer.
Police told the dpa news agency Wednesday that the man was on the highway near the town of Hoesbach in Bavaria the day before when he smelled something odd.
Pulling over, the man spotted flames under the hood of his car. He quickly grabbed bottles of beer from a case in his car and quenched the fire.
Authorities say the fire department responded but there was nothing left for them to do.

Berlin is 844 miles from Nice.

Hi friends all say that he's a stouthearted fellow and tends to use beer to fix what ale's him.

Not all of his friends agree with that assessment. They're at lagerheads over it.

Trouble was a-brewing. Fortunately it was extinguished with a brew.

Paramedics treated the burns to his hands with a DAB of ointment.

Sources say the fire may have been started by a jealous husband. He has been spotted recently hanging out in bars with Stella.
