Miso Soup Saves Hawaiian Man's House
What do you do when you're house is on fire? Throw anything wet you can find on it, including miso soup as was the case in Hawaii last Saturday.
Hawaiian man Reuben Prensky woke up to the sound of fire Saturday, finding a plastic sink in flames when he went looking for the source of the noise, according to the Honolulu Star Advertiser. He threw the nearest source of water he cold on the flames -- a giant pot of miso soup.
The soup didn't put the fire out completely, but it did buy Prensky enough time to spray actual water on the fire, ultimately saving the house.
In total, roughly $10,000 worth of damage was done, but not having to find a new home? That's a pretty good use of soup.
