How far can you think when your car is on fire? Most of us would just freak out and then hurry to fetch water.

But a man in Germany thought out of the box and used beer to douse fire on his car.


According to a report by The Washington Post, the incident occurred on the highway near the town of Hösbach in Bavaria.

The man spotted flames under the hood of his car and quickly grabbed some beer bottles from his car to douse the fire. 


Reports suggest that the fire department also responded later, but by then the man had already extinguished the fire.

Beer to the rescue!
