If you're a local news reporter and you're looking for an interview that could be the Internet's next big thing, start talking to people after they've just escaped a fire.
Fresno, California's KMPH was covering a local apartment fire when Robert Wright approached one of the station's photographers with an unusual fire escape story.
"I got my kids out, that was the first thing I got, and then I thought about my ribs. I didn't want to let my ribs burn and stuff because I take pride in what I do. It was like 3 o'clock in the morning. I was hungry," Wright told KMPH.
