A fake fire call turns out to be marriage proposal in Kingsville.

Volunteer firefighter Corey Vultaggio asked Lyndi Meloche for marriage and presented her with a ring on Friday.

The whole event was caught on video and put on YouTube.

With permission from the town's fire chief, Vultaggio phoned his girlfriend and told her there was a fire call at her apartment building and she needed to evacuate.

Neighbours and nearby businesses were warned ahead of time about the fire alarm and plans would have been scrubbed if a real fire call had come in, says a Kingsville firefighter.
