A group of nudists prevented a roughly 10-acre brush fire from growing even larger and got a big thank you from a Tennessee fire department.
According to WSMV, a brush fire started in the Tennessee county of Rutherford on Wednesday.
The fire was near the Rock Haven Nudist Lodge and the smoke was visible to the campers on site. That’s when one of the lodge owners told a group of employees to grab their 1964 Ford fire truck and check out the fire.
The fire truck, which the lodge owns in case of emergency, holds roughly 500 gallons of water. It was also the first time the lodge has used the truck to put out a large fire.
Three, fully clothed, employees worked to keep the fire from spreading to a nearby trailer and power pole while the other firefighters worked on containment.
According to Rutherford County Fire-Rescue, two structures were endangered but not involved.
The cause of the fire is still being investigated, though it was aided by wind and dry ground.
There are no reports of any injuries.
