We've heard of folks braving house fires to save pets or neighbours.
But fighting the flames to rescue a couple of cans of beer?
"I went back into the house like a dummy." That's what Walter Serpit, a Georgia man who uses a cane to walk, said after he risked his life to save beer from his fridge while his house was on fire.
According to a local ABC News station, the flames broke out in Serpit's home while six adults and two young children were watching TV.
"I told them to get the kids out and everything, and me myself, being an alcoholic, I was trying to get my beer out," he told the station. "You feel me?"
Serpit managed to rescue several cans of beer from the fire without getting burned.
The Red Cross arrived shortly after firefighters put out the flames and they are helping the family get back on its feet.
