Chinese firefighters were surprised to find out their gear turned into ice armor as they extinguished a fire in Altay, Northwest China’s, Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.

The temperature at the time was below minus 30 degrees Celsius (-22 degrees Fahrenheit), according to China Daily. The incredibly low temperature froze their gear to the point that they stood upright after taking them off – giving the impression that they had donned ice armor.
