Call him Captain America.

Of course, Steve Voglezon is not a comic superhero come to life. But he is a real-life captain in the U.S. Army, and he is also pretty heroic: He rescued two people from a burning vehicle in the aftermath of a car accident in Chatham County, N.C., ABC News reports.

According to the report, Voglezon had been on his way to the mall on Sunday with his girlfriend—fittingly wearing a Captain America T-shirt—when he witnessed the head-on collision. Ignoring danger, Voglezon, a Fort Bragg Army captain, leaped into action along with other neighbors who responded before firefighters even arrived.

Voglezon used a fire extinguisher to smash out the windows of one of the cars and dragged William Thompson out of the burning vehicle and away to a safe distance.

“I grabbed one of the fire extinguishers and we smashed out … the back window and the driver’s side window. … There wasn’t a real plan; I just had tunnel vision,” the soldier told ABC News later.
