Robert Wright was just kicking back and barbecuing some ribs at 3am (as you do), when a fire broke out in his Fresno, California apartment.

KMPH FOX 26 News was on the scene fast, and got a sensational interview with Robert, who carried his family out of the burning building along with his BBQ platter.

He wasn't able to shed any light on the cause of the fire, but he sure showed off his prize rack of ribs real nice, also admitting that his only injury of smoke in the lungs didn't matter that much because he "already had smoke in [his] lungs":
