FRESNO, Calif. – A man, who survived an apartment fire, is going viral.

Fire officials say the blaze at a Fresno apartment complex broke out shortly before 3 a.m. on Tuesday.

While at the scene, KMPH photojournalists met Robert Wright, who says he was at home at the time of the fire.

In fact, he says he was barbecuing ribs when the fire started next door.

“I got my kids first and then I thought about my ribs and I didn’t want to let my ribs burn,” Wright said.

The interview may make you reminisce about another memorable interview from KFOR.
