  • Still a great vent video

    Seen this before, but it really shows what good vertical vent hole can do for interior crews.
    Note the news crew idiots say, "they are surrounding it and letting it burn out", meanwhile crews are inside putting the fire out

    There's nothing like watching a good group of guys put out a fire like it was described in the textbook.

    Nice job.

          Well, Harve, it's obviously because the booster reel wouldn't reach!

              Laugh if you will. I know of a department for whom that was the SOP....
