Video of a Houston firefighter faking a house fire so he could propose to his girlfriend, a police officer, is heating up the web.

Around the 5-minute mark of the clip, Bruno Mars’s “Marry You” starts to play as smoke seeps out of the garage door of the house, and fireman Jesse Gonzalez emerges. He walks down the driveway towards his girlfriend, Olga Peck, who works for the Houston Police Department. Then he dropped to one knee and popped the question. She said yes.

A Houston Fire Department spokesperson told ABC News that firefighters were still on duty the whole time, listening to their radios and ready to head to the nearest fire at a moment’s notice.
