I hope it was at least something good like Hopzilla from Georgia’s Terrapin Beer Company and not some crap like Bud Light, but somehow I doubt it.

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) –
Officials are still investigating the cause of a house fire that broke out on 42nd St. near Oates Ave. in Columbus, Thursday afternoon, but residents are blaming a newly installed water heater.

Six adults and two young children were inside watching television when the room began filling with smoke. After the children were rescued and everyone made it outside safely, a man who walks with a cane went back in the burning house to retrieve something he left behind.

“I told them to get the kids out and everything, and me myself, being an alcoholic, I was trying to get my beer out,” said Walter Serpit, “I went back into the house like a dummy and the door shut on me because this back draft was about to kill me.”

Serpit managed to save several cans of beer and he escaped the home without getting burned.
