That... Does Not Happen in My Neighborhood

So the noteworthy news of the day-

Apparently in Colorado, the day before yesterday, a small aircraft flying a banner crashed into a house in the suburbs.

The notable part of the story - The pilot of the plane was also a local firefighter who immediately started to put the fire out with a garden hose.*

*Original reports had him parachuting out of the plane and then fighting the fire, which would have been more awesome, but like most awesome things has turned out to not be true.

So, what happened was that a firefighter, who was also a pilot, walked away from crashing his plane (into a house that he used to own, just to up the WTF meter) and immediately turned back into a firefighter and started... you know... fighting the fire.  I'm assuming that he immediately stripped off his fuel soaked clothes and fought the fire nude while whistling 'Fire in Cairo' by The Cure.

You know what this means.

Suck it, Canada.
