A viral video on social media shows a man trying to put out a fire on a rickshaw in the middle of a busy street. In the viral video, a group of people is seen trying to put out a fire coming from the engine of an auto rickshaw. Despite repeatedly dousing it with buckets of water, their efforts are unsuccessful.

Meanwhile, another man comes running from behind holding a Coca-Cola bottle. He sprays the contents onto the fire with full force, mimicking a fire extinguisher, and ultimately manages to control the blaze.

The viral video of a man using cola to put out a fire was shared by @gunsnrosesgirl3 on the social media platform X. With the captivating caption, “Using cola to extinguish a fire,” the video has attracted significant attention, reaching 15.5 million views and counting.

On the other hand, netizens are praising the young man’s quick thinking and debating how a carbonated drink can be effective in extinguishing fires.

One user pointed out that Coke and other fizzy drinks contain pressurized carbon dioxide (CO2), which can reach up to 1,200 pounds per square inch, making them effective as fire extinguishers in emergencies. They praised the idea as excellent.

Another user explained that the reason Coca-Cola works to extinguish fires is because of the CO2 dissolved in it. This gas blocks oxygen from reaching the fire, which prevents it from continuing to burn. This was their analysis of why the method was effective.
