Hawaii man fights fire with miso soup, saves home

By Associated Press

HILO, Hawaii (AP) A Hawaii Island woman says her son saved her home from a fire by quelling it with soup.

Joy Gardner of Papaaloa tells the Honolulu Star-Advertiser her son Reuben Prensky woke up early Saturday to crackling noises and found the laundry sink engulfed in flames.

She says Prensky grabbed a large pot of miso soup on the stovetop to douse the fire, slowing it enough for him to grab the garden hose to extinguish the fire before firefighters arrived.

Fire officials say he saved about $200,000 in property.

They say the fire started from an electrical short in a light switch in the laundry area.
