Inside a Fire

Curious what it really is like inside a burning building and what firefighters see each time they enter to fight a fire? It's not like what is portrayed in Hollywood movies and on television shows, but rather limited visibility, confusion, and loud noises from various fireground activities.

Watch this video from a local firefighter's camera to see first hand what it's like. It was taken during a training exercise in Concord where firefighters were given training on indicators of extreme fire behavior and how to prevent being caught in a potentially deadly fireground event called a flashover.
