A local man will be putting his skills to the test Wednesday night as he competes in the qualifying round of NBC’s "American Ninja Warrior."

KSBY first met up with Thomas Kofron of San Luis Obispo last year when he was credited with using orange juice to help save homes in Ventura from the Thomas Fire.

At that time, he had just finished his season as a firefighter at the CAL FIRE station in Cambria.

Since then, he’s traveled to Los Angeles to tackle the American Ninja Warrior obstacle course in hopes of moving on to the city qualifying and city finals for the competition.  

To find out how he does, watch American Ninja Warrior, now in its tenth season, on KSBY Wednesday from 8 to 10 p.m.
