Boater tries to single-handedly put out fire
A quick-thinking pair of boaters near Kamloops, B.C., used their speed boat and a few fancy manoeuvres to help extinguish a grass fire threatening nearby homes.
Witnesses say when a fire broke out in the grass along the South Thompson River on Saturday, the driver of a high-powered “cigarette” boat sped over to help.
Moving in close to the water’s edge, the driver repeatedly drove in circles, accelerating quickly to get the motor to send huge plumes of spray onto the flames.
