A quick thinking man in Austria opted to drive his flaming car directly to the  local fire station instead of letting it burn to smithereens on the side of the highway.  

The firemen at the station were doing chores when the man drove frantically into the station's parking lot, his engine fully engulfed in flames. The men quickly sprung into action by dousing the flames with water and foam from several fire extinguishers. The cause of the fire was apparently an oil-soaked rag left inside the engine compartment.

No injures were reported, however the status of the man's car is unknown. Our guess is that it was probably burnt to a crisp.
