Heroic fireman risks life to drag burning gas cylinder out of house

A heroic fireman in northwestern China risked his life to drag a burning gas cylinder out of a house.

The video, captured in Dingxi City in Gansu Province last Sunday (February 10), shows a brave firefighter using a rake to drag a burning cylinder continuously leaking gas out of a residential house.

According to reports, the house caught fire and lit the gas leaking out of a cylinder due to its pressure valve was broken.

Since the valve could not be switched off and the cylinder might explode at any time, the firefighter risked his life to move the cylinder from the house to a safe area.

After the fire was put out, the house owner held the fireman’s hand to appreciate his brave action.
