At the height of wildfire season, a Washington state lawyer bought a vintage fire truck to protect his home. Two days later, he was out saving other people’s houses.
After Alex Thomason purchased the truck, he took a brief, four-hour course on fighting fires. He then used a Facebook community to find like-minded folks and they all rolled out to fight the wildfires burning through the Pacific Northwest.
“My wife thinks I’m crazy,” Thomason told KHQ News.
The video below shows Thomason and his crew with “Clifford,” (pictured left) his firetruck, beating back a blaze from an elderly person’s home, after the owner had fled the approaching flames.
