Children Escape Brooklyn House Fire By Jumping From Window
Boy hurt jumping from window; 15 displaced by fire
Thanks to Backstep Firefighter for the links!
I just watched a video and I will share it below. The house is small, yet the amount of firefighters on scene is a lot. It is in New York. In order to get that many firefighters on scene, MY city would be looking at close to 3/4 of our resources. Plus there is a platform AND a stick in the air. That takes some keen apparatus placement.
The description states that it went to a 2nd alarm and quickly to a 3rd alarm. Again, as I look at the house I think that it just so small…sure there is an exposure about a foot away, but it is brick.
Then the camera man pans out to the exposure. Not only is it brick, but it has several windows on the side the house is. Oh, and the exposure is about 6 stories high and a block or two long. Then it puts everything into perspective!
