Lawrence-Cedarhurst Fire Department, building fire with people trapped 97 Cedarhurst Ave., 1/16/15 – YouTube

Excellent helmet cam footage. Nothing “showing”, but one hanging out the window. Limited manpower on arrival. Closed apartment door with obvious signs of smoke under pressure. One man throwing a 36′ footer by himself until a civilian comes to help him. Teamwork!

Firefighters extinguishing a car fire goes wrong – YouTube

While I think most of us here in the U.S.A. have seen a car take off during a car fire, this one makes me curious.

We disregard Europe’s use of high pressure hose reels. How long would it take US to pack up the bumper line or cross lay and reposition the rig on a job like this? Especially if it ran into a house?

For the record, I thought it was going to roll backwards.

Yes. I know this is long. At least take 10 minutes to watch the last video (Pt. 5 The Conclusion).  There’s no denying their results.

I love this quote: “It can be just as windy on the second floor as it can on the tenth floor at times, so don’t think this only pertains to high rise fires”.
