Houston Firemen Use Fishing Boat To Put Out Fire Post-Harvey

Feel good fishing stories keep coming from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. First, there was the man making the best of a flooded living room by hunting down a fish that floated his way on in there. Now, a bass boat in a flooded street creates a huge rooster tail for firemen to put out an electric fire when they couldn’t get close enough to fight it on their own. When life gives you lemons, as they say.

You’ll also see in the video how they hold the boat in place while they are firing off the rooster tail, with all hands on deck along the sides, and a huge truck in front. Improvisation and ingenuity to get the job done: that’s The American Way.
