02/02/15 181 W - + 6 - 5 House Fire Helmet Cam from Boiling Springs Lakes

Taking a break from the history train (maybe we should rename this thing Legeros History Blog), Statter911 last week featured this helmet cam video of a Brunswick County house fire on Wednesday, January 28. The minimally edited raw footage by YouTube user fireandice9008 captures Boiling Springs Lake and Southport firefighters rescuing three pets. (Haven't found any news reports, so haven't found street address. Was located in Boiling Springs Lakes. Looks like Winnabow, Sunny Point, and Saint James fire departments were among those also dispatched.)

The clip is seven-and-a-half minutes long, andshows inital entry and search, and the first few minutes of interior attack. Read the Statter911 story for a bit of tactical discussion, which includes more details on the suppression (and salvage) activites. Read a note on the BSLFD Facebook page about the fire, from the Fire Chief thanking their fellow responders. 

Raw footage from firefighters is a rarity in North Carolina, at least as posted publically. Er, and as Yours Truly as found via sundry YouTube searches. Hope we'll see more.
