HEFEI, China, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- A quick-thinking driver in China whose truck caught fire in transit drove the vehicle to the front door of the local fire station for help.

Video from the fire station in Hefei, Anhui Province, shows the flaming truck approach the station Sunday and about two dozen firefighters coming out of the facility to fight the flames.

The local fire department said it took less then one minute to extinguish the flames.

The truck driver told firefighters his truck, which was hauling a load of wood, burst into flames while he was driving and he decided to drive to the nearby fire station instead of calling for help.
