Kevin is a Hero!

Yes, that's right, Kevin is a hero. Last night we were driving the 5 across the Tejon pass and we stopped at a rest area. A pickup truck pulled into the spot next to us. When I came out of the bathroom I noticed that the truck had its hood up with flames shooting out of it! Then I saw Kevin confidently step forward with a fire extinguisher and put the fire out. I looked at our car and noticed the trunk was open, hence the place where Kevin got the fire extinguisher from. That's my Boy Scout--always prepared! After years of carrying around a fire extinguisher, he finally gets to put it to use. The only problem was that the extinguisher was stored in the spare tire well. Underneath 3 cases of wine. Fully trained by my dad to save the wine at all costs, Kevin pulled out the wine, got the extinguisher, then started to put the wine back before thinking "hmm, maybe I should put out the fire first." :D Anyway, the truck owner was unhappily stranded, but at least he didn't lose his whole car, thanks to Kevin!
