Selfie on fire put out by Connecticut firefighters

A guy named Tom Lavery decided to make a fiery selfie during a St. Patrick's Day parade in New Haven, Connecticut. When stumbling across a dumpster fire, Tom called on his friend to pose for a selfie, while the blaze was being put out in the backdrop, commenting "this is a fire video, dude... I just wanna see him get it out... There you go!" But firefighters decided on their own finale to Tom's video. The selfie-addict and his friend got a surprising water stream directed at them, before Tom managed to finish his "this is a weird way to do it..." sentence. "This is why you don't stick around when things are on fire," he later posted on YouTube.
