(Scroll down for video) While many people try to save their most valuable possessions in the case of a fire, one man decided to save his meal.

In a video that has gone viral, Robert Wright of Fresno, California, spoke about his daring rescue of his favorite food, ribs.

Wright was cooking the ribs as a midnight snack when his neighbor’s apartment caught on fire, forcing residents to flee.

Fresno firefighters said that they were called to a fire around 2:30 a.m. on Tuesday, in an apartment complex of six units off Cedar and Bullard avenues, where they found an apartment in flames.

Wright said that he made sure his wife and kids were out of harm’s way before he ran back into the home to get his ribs.

Apart from a little smoke inhalation, Wright said he and his family escaped unhurt. He and his family were among seven people who were displaced due to the fire.
