While newspaper delivery driver, Vince Cocoroch, is on his route at 2am in Victoria, BC, Canada, he notices the side of a restaurant on fire. He calls the fire department, but rather than wait for the firetrucks to arrive, he jumps out of his car and puts out the fire himself (3:06), getting a little burned in the process.

Cocoroch phoned 911 to report the fire because the flames were starting to spread from the plastic sign to the structure itself.
“I didn’t know if I would be able to put it out or not. I know they have to call their guys and it takes a little while before they get there,” said Cocoroch.
After making the emergency call, he grabbed a rag and started beating out the flames.
“I got a little burned from it,” he said.
“When I was pounding on the fire, the plastic sign was splattering.”
Video of the fire was captured by the dash cam on Cocoroch’s delivery truck. Appropriately, it's titled Right Place - Right Time.
