    Here is the link for a video from Houston, TX where a Captain had to call a mayday: http://www.firecamera.com/index.cfm?...m=216&titles=0

    The vid gave me chills. Scary Sh*t

    That is amazing. My boss is a volunteer firefighter and he's told me a lot about the rolls he's been on and how firefighting works. He's somewhat got me wanting to become a volunteer firefighter. I've had my share of emergencies I've worked on as a Boy Scout, and the rush you get is just awesome. I've heard the radio chatter on one of the rolls he did. To have a firefighter stuck in a building is one of the worst things that could happen. I am so glad they got him out of the building and I hope appropriate measures were taken against the arsonist. Thanks for the find, I passed it on to the bossman.

    Wow, I can't imagine how hot and smokey and confusing it must be to actually go into a burning building.

    I think that video could show firefighters what can happen when it goes bad. And crawdaddy if you are interested in it go to a volunteer station and talk to them.

    To get a feel on what it is like, cover a set of goggle and wear them or try to find something in a dark room. The buddy system is used to search a room.
