A fire captain and two of his volunteers were fighting a bushfire in Southampton, Australia when the flames jumped the fire break, news.com.au reported.
The three firefighters sheltered inside their fire truck for about 40 minutes.
Balingup volunteer fire captain John Guest told news.com.au:
"In my rear view mirrors I could see everything that was made of plastic melting. Then one of my rear view mirrors slowly melted, it was only an arms length away from me through the window. We are so lucky the truck did not catch on fire."
