A quick thinking man in China drove his car into a nearby fire station after realizing the engine had caught fire. Instead of his vehicle being engulfed in flames, the firefighters were able to drench the smoky blaze, saving his BMW from greater damage. While it's uncertain what caused this fire, some are speculating the current heatwave.
Another poor soul falls ill from China's heatwave... A traffic signal. The thing was legitimately smoldering but pedestrians and vehicles didn't think twice about passing under it.
