Walter Serpit and his family were in the living room of their Columbus, Georgia, home when smoke began pouring in.
Everyone made it outside safely − but Walter, using his cane, went back for what really mattered ... his beer.
"I told them to get the kids out and everything, and me myself, being an alcoholic, I was trying to get my beer out," Serpit said. "You feel me?"
The American Red Cross is helping the family get back on their feet and relocated.
After your family is safe, is there anything you would run back into a burning house to try and save?
