But nothing compares to the excitement of a parked car exploding into flames during the otherwise quiet lunch hour just a few meters from your home.
Was it spontaneous combustion? A burning cigarette forgotten in the ashtray? With the amount of water and foam these firemen used to douse the flames, we might never know.
The fire crew raced to the scene and put out the fire within two minutes of the initial explosion, proving yet again their extreme dedication to our health and safety.
Here's to firefighters everywhere - thank you!
