There’s plenty that can go wrong during a live shot, but this was probably the least of those worries.

KTLA’s Courtney Friel is reporting on the wildfires currently spreading throughout southern California when she approaches a passerby to see what he thinks of the disaster movie-like scene playing out before them.

However, the man, who’s shirtless and carrying his dog, has a different agenda in mind.

In the unlikely chance that she had second thoughts about that offer, those probably went away once she actually started talking to him.
