Car fire at 24th and San Jose put out by axe-wielding SF Firefighters

It’s always nice when a potentially frightening scene is quickly resolved with particular badassness by our city’s finest, as reader and eyewitness Nikki explains:

Tonight my boyfriend when out on our patio to check on our dog when he noticed bright flashing lights and smoke rising from what had to be our street. Then we heard a girl screaming. We went out in the front to see what was going on, and the hood of her car was on fire, the flames doubling in size within a few minutes. The girl was pleading for someone to get a fire extinguisher, but before anyone was able to get one, the SFFD arrived, extinguished the fire, and axed the hood of the car to get it open. Total badasses.

(Thanks Nikki!)
