Not everyone has the stuff it takes to be a firefighter. Take the gent you see holding the hose in the image above: as point-man on the water jet, he strides up to the burning Chevrolet to put out the fire. While performing what appears to be a routine hose-down right next to the sedan, something inside the car explodes with enough force to jolt the cameraman in the nearby apartment.

What's the fireman do? You can see for yourself in the vid after the jump, but it looks a lot like a shrug of the shoulders and getting on with business. Masked firefighter, we salute you.

      Firemen/women are the true American Heros, They risk their lives everyday, in circumstances that would scare the Bejebbus out of most people. To all the firemen/ women in this great country I salute you. Keep up the good work

      If indeed that is an old Malibu ... they had a cross-car magnesium support under the dash. THAT would cause the sparks/explosion once the water got on it.

      It takes a special type of person to run into a burning building when every one is running out

          Yes. For the glue catching fire near the headers because of extreme heat.

        Right, as if GM cars are the only ones that can catch fire...

          And there goes True Voice... Just? Did you just say JUST? Dude, it's been 5 years since the cruise control module fire recall. Wanna know how I know? Because I worked at a Ford dealership at that time and one of my jobs as an intern was to disconnect the cruise control module and tape it off with electrical tape. Also, it was nowhere near millions. It only affected maybe a quarter of a million trucks/SUVs.
