Father hailed a hero for putting out car fire after crash

KALAMAZOO, Mich- A quick thinking father jumped into action, extinguishing a car fire before it could spread to a nearby home. The vehicle hit as many as three homes before it caught fire after crashing into another house. Awoken by his son, who heard the crash, the man saw the fire from his home, grabbed an extinguisher from his boat, and ran towards the vehicle wielding his extinguisher. He was able to extinguish the fire, which he says was rapidly spreading under the engine compartment. Police say that the occupants of the vehicle fled the scene and K9 units failed to locate them.
