The Lasso: Roping in the best of the web

Canadians know how to fight small fires

When it comes to fighting fires, Canadians don't mess around.

A small fire was sparked when two large vehicles collided on a remote road. Everyone involved in the accident was fine, but the fire was burning dangerously close to some scrub bush. A forest was also nearby, meaning a wildfire could have been sparked.

Cue the water bomber.

Rather than risk waiting for fire crews, the Canadians brought in a massive airtanker designed to fight forest fires. It's pretty safe to say this fire is out.

Well done, Canada. Can I borrow that to put out a couple candles?
