It was 3 AM. Robert Wright of Fresno, California was barbecuing a slab of pork ribs. Then the apartment next to his caught on fire. Wright got his wife and children outside, safe from the flames. Then he went back in to rescue the helpless ribs that otherwise would have been lost, if not for his courage. 9 News reports:
The only thing I think first is ‘make sure them ribs is right’ and ran over and got my family man,” Mr Wright said, in the interview that is now going viral.
He managed to get his wife and children out of the house, along with the ribs, while a woman and child who were in the burning apartment managed to scramble out the window.
The blaze broke out at 3am, and Mr Wright was quick to explain why he was barbecuing at such a peculiar time of the evening.
“It was three o’clock in the morning, I was hungry man, I was like put them ribs on there,” he said.
