Dumpster-fire selfie FAIL! A couple learns the hard way when NOT to stick around

A viral video clip proves that the precision and expertise executed by local fire firefighters never ceases to amaze.

It all happened when a young couple in New Haven, Conn., decided to have some fun and record themselves in front of a dumpster fire.

“This is why you don’t stick around when things are on fire,” Tom Lavery wrote when he posted the video to YouTube Sunday.
