COLUMBUS, GA – A man who ran into his burning home did so to rescue the one thing he can’t live without. No, it wasn’t his children, it was his beer.

Walter Serpit said he told firefighters to save his children as he ran to get his beer.

When he was inside, he said the door shut on him and he realized how dumb he really was to risk his life for alcohol.

Luckily Walter and everyone else who was in the house when the fire started made it out OK.
