Two guys were testing out their new GoPro cameras when a dangerous fire erupted at an apartment complex in Rapid City, South Dakota. Instead of just recording the devastation, they sprung into action when they realized “they could probably help.”
Despite the treacherous inferno, the men ran towards the blaze and banged on doors to warn people of the danger. When one door wouldn’t open, the man busted down the door with his shoulder. Fuck! I’ve always wanted to do that! Inside he found a frightened corgi and he chased the uncooperative little guy out to safety.
The destructive blaze caused a partial collapse of the building’s roof before fire fighters were able to extinguish the flames. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but witnesses believe that a lightning strike caused the fire.
One person was taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation. Oliver White of the Rapid City Fire Department said there is significant damage to the structure.
“Looks like there’s going to be some families displaced by this, there was a partial roof collapse, firefighters were working on the fire when the collapse happened but lucky there were no firefighter injuries as a result of this.”
The only regret from the harrowing ordeal was that he thought he should have used a kick to break down the door instead of his shoulder, “My friend injured his shoulder during this so we’ll definitely change it up next time we break down some doors, haha.”
Fuck! I’ve always wanted to do that and now I know to use my legs and not my shoulders like in the movies.
