Dewing the Dew Quenches Car Fires Thirst on I-5 in Federal Way
Federal Way, WA: Just before 5:30 p.m., South King Fire and Rescue received a report of a truck being on fire on the right shoulder of I-5 just north of South 348th Street in Federal Way.
While fire crews were responding, the owner of the truck and a bystander jumped into action to save the truck from becoming fully engulfed in flames.
Using an unconventional tool, the driver and bystander started using the popular soda Mountain Dew to put out the flames.
Through the power of several cans of the soda they were able to extinguish the fire just prior to the fire department's arrival.
Washington State Patrol and South King Fire and Rescue confirmed the fire was out and no injuries were reported.
