This CCTV footage shows a huge tanker catching on fire in a gas station in Halkapinar, Turkey, and quickly going up in flames. As captured in the video, a brave man, later identified as Engin Koçak, hopped into the truck and drove it away from the station before it could explode. Some cars caught fire, but the damage could have obviously have been way, way worse. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
