The LNU Lightning Complex fire started on August 17th, 2020 in North Bay, California, and burned more than 350,000 acres. It has officially become California’s second-largest wildfire on record, San Francisco BCS local reported.
A man named Chad Little living with his family in Vacaville, California, saw the fire heading towards his house and shop. While his family was packing to leave the house and move to a safer place, he remembered that it’s not the first time this has happened to him.
Five years ago, the family lost their house in a similar situation with a fire. They had to rebuild everything from the beginning. Their house was meant to be finished by the end of this year, so he would go the extra mile to save the new home.
Chad decided to use water to fight the fire but then the water got turned off.
He had to find a quick solution otherwise his property would be burned. So, he decided to use the only liquid he had available on him, which was cans of Bud Light beer.
“When I ripped up the sheet metal, it had a nail, so I was just shaking it up, popping it and spraying them, popping it out and grabbing another one,” shared Chad with NBC12. “My buddies all tease me about drinking water beer, and I say, ‘Hey, saved my shop.’”
