Updated on March 1, 2019 at 7 p.m. — Before the fire department could arrive to a burning vehicle on Interstate 35, two brothers were able to keep the flames down.
On Thursday the Guthrie Fire Department responded to mile marker 164 for the fire, and upon arrival found flames coming out from the engine.
Jay Andrews and his brother were traveling in separate vehicles
when they spotted the burning vehicle.
Andrews’ brother was driving a Penske truck ahead of him when they decided to stop and help, despite being two hours behind their schedule.
Inside the Penske truck was a fire extinguisher, which was used to help knock down some of the flames.
“God played a role in that incident,” Andrews said. “I ran and got the extinguisher from my brother and sprinted into action.”
Andrews said, “I felt God told me to stop despite the delay to help.”
