A truck carrying straw mats caught fire near a gas station in Shenyang, Northeast China's Liaoning Province on July 14.

Considering the huge danger the fire could bring everyone in the vicinity, the driver chose to risk his life to accelerate forward out of the downtown area.

The driver stopped the truck at a sparsely populated place after driving about five kilometers.

He then ran away from the truck and called the emergency number.

Firefighters arrived shortly and extinguished the fire. The truck had almost burned down before they arrived and no casualties were reported.
