The man in this video thought standing in front of a fire would be the ideal spot to take some video of himself. The fire department had other ideas.

When he spotted a dumpster in flames, a light bulb went on over his head. "Why not roll some video of me standing in front of this fire, laughing and smiling? Who wouldn't do that?" His idea may have sounded good in theory, but in practice it was anything but, as he and his cohort wound up covered in water from the hose being sprayed to put out the blaze.

When will people learn there is a time and a place to take a selfie? We've got yo-yos doing this in front of a fire and right after getting shot. The day when people can take selfies while they sleep to catch them in action is clearly not far off.
