Only A Firefighter Could Make A 'Burning' Building This Romantic

Coming up with the best way to pop the question is never easy.

But for some, the answer comes rather naturally. Last week, a member of the Houston Fire Department named Jesse set up the perfect scene to propose to his girlfriend: a burning home.

Sounds romantic, right? Maybe not at first, but get this: Jesse's girlfriend is a member Houston Police Department, and he had her called to the scene of a fake fire before he emerged from the smoke, playing Bruno Mars' "Marry Me", ready to get down on one knee.

Thanks to the YouTube channel Fire6688, we've got the whole thing on tape. If you're impatient, you can skip ahead to the five-minute mark.
