COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Officials are still investigating the cause of a house fire that broke out on 42nd St. near Oates Ave. in Columbus, Thursday afternoon, but residents are blaming a newly installed water heater.
Six adults and two young children were inside watching television when the room began filling with smoke. After the children were rescued and everyone made it outside safely, a man who walks with a cane went back in the burning house to retrieve something he left behind.
"I told them to get the kids out and everything, and me myself, being an alcoholic, I was trying to get my beer out," said Walter Serpit, "I went back into the house like a dummy and the door shut on me because this back draft was about to kill me."
Serpit managed to save several cans of beer and he escaped the home without getting burned.
The Red Cross arrived shortly after firefighters extinguished the flames and they are helping the family get back on their feet. One Red Cross volunteer at the scene said they were able to respond quickly because a neighbor alerted them to the situation.
Beer? Ummm, no. Click the link the see what he rescued.
Let’s make it really hard....both the Obamadork and beer are in the burning house.
Rescue or gasoline?
This guy openly admits to being an alcoholic. At least he’s honest.
Yo man, whatever EBT can buy.
It’s All About the Beer.
An alcoholic who is watching his weight!
You don't need to be an alcoholic to save your beer. The general sequence of heroism is: children, pets, beer, wife.
Ron Howard can buy the movie rights
I don’t see the issue here...
Did the Red Cross bring beer? Domestic, imported or craft?
“Hold mu beer” and I’ll go back for more.
I wouldn’t cross a street to piss on a case of Bud-Lite if it was on fire.
I wonder what brand of beer he drinks.
I dont see the issue here...
Yes, but the beer in question was Bud Light. Now do you understand?
It Bud Light
Sorry. Fumble fingers.
It was Bud Light...
Maybe wife then beer. Maybe wife to carry the beer out instead.
