Holy smoke! Glenn Heights cop pushes burning truck out of Jack in the Box drive-thru Quick-Thinking Cop Rams Blazing Truck Away From Fast Food Drive-Thru

The officer then pushed the truck out of the drive-thru line and away from the restaurant.

A police officer in Glenn Heights, Texas is being heralded as a hero after using his squad auto to contain a truck that had burst into flames.

The driver of the pickup, his wife and his daughter were able to escape without any injuries. It's unclear what caused the truck to catch fire.

Despite the truck being engulfed in flames, there is absolutely no damage to the building - just a charred curb.

Womack drives the cop auto over the curb to better maneuver into position behind the truck.

But the officer was able to bring the vehicle to a stop a safe distance from the restaurant, greatly reducing the risk for employees and patrons dining inside.

Thanks to Womack's selfless conduct, the fire didn't spread to the restaurant itself ― and subsequently no one inside or outside was injured.

The Glenn Heights Police Department posted the video on its Facebook and wrote, "I would like to commend Officer Chris Womack".

The modest officer said the call-out definitely got his adrenaline pumping. "It was just a God-send that I was here at that particular time".
