Staff Makes Student Patiently Wait to Report Fire

What started off as the inconvenience of having one's gas tank siphoned ended as a major let down when the jackass accidentally lit everything on fire. In a more just world, this would've happened to the thief's car, but no, he just drives off. All you can really say is that at least he didn't get much gas.

Apparently all the oil in these trees makes them extra flammable, and when the wind spreads the flames through the canopy like this, it spreads quickly, violently, and it's absolutely terrifying.

This was seconds before Croatia's win against Russia in the 2018 world cup. Right before the final penalty, these firefighters got a call and zipped out of the station in about 20 seconds. Priorities are priorities.

This helicopter pilot's got mad skills. Apparently the pilot took the initiative to put the fire out before backup arrived, and managed to accomplish the mission with all that pool water.

We're assuming the fire department got all the people out before they started setting up ladders to help the raccoons escape. We have a soft spot for the world's trash pandas. Even if they spread disease and knock over your garbage cans, it's nice to see them not die in a fire.
