(CBS) - Here's a fun game: imagine the worst possible way to fight a fire. Did you imagine using a machine to suck the fire towards your face? Smart thinking. But now imagine if it actually worked.

Behold the power of vacuums. Who knew these dust suckers could fight fires as well? Though that fire did get a few good licks in, what with burning up the bag and all. Call it a draw.
