Shirtless man holding dog asks out reporter during item on devastating fire
Man thought wildfire was 'pretty cool'
For in-the-field reporters, stopping random pedestrians to get their take on breaking news is risky at the best of times, so it's probably best to steer clear of the meathead guys with no shirt on cradling mall dogs.
KTLA reporter Courtney Friel was dispatched to the gloriously-named Rancho Cucamonga near Los Angeles to get some local reaction to a fire raging through the neighbourhood.
Stopping the passing man, she asked him: "Sir, do you live around here?"
"Yeah...wow you're so pretty you wanna go on a date sometime?" he replied, only for Friel to snap: "You're on the air live right now on KTLA."
A consummate professional, Friel ploughed on with the vox pop undeterred, as smoke billowed from the flame-licked horizon.
And what did the man think of the fire threatening his town?
