CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- Now this is what being In Your Corner is all about! Fox 4 photographer Dan Ayres is being hailed a hero after lending a helping hand to a Cape Coral man whose lawnmower caught fire Thursday afternoon.

Dan spotting the situation on Northeast 2nd Avenue after finishing up working on a story.

The man tried throwing dirt on the fire, but that didn't work. So Dan stepped in, jumping fences to get a hose from a neighbor's yard.  Problem was, the hose didn't extend far enough.

So the neighbor quickly gave Dan a fire extinguisher.  And with only one blast left, Dan saved the day!

Way to go, Dan!
