  • Backdraft caught on video

    Not sure if this was ever posted here or not. I found this on You Tube today:

      Incredible video. We may see flashovers often, but backdrafts are pretty rare. Anyone have any additional information about this fire?

          I just took a class with Mike Dugan, Champ (both of FDNY), and Mike Wilson (BC with Charlotte FD) and they had it in their power point presentation. I believe it was said that the video came from a police dash cam in Ohio. I forget the name of the City, maybe Freeport or Freemont. It is an awesome video that I have been able to show to a couple of the classes that I have taught.

            It says ST J PD on the top of the video and those look like Ohio highway signs. Whatever help that is.

              Has anyone ever seen the backdraft from PA? I believe it happened in New Brighton (same place as the train derailment a few weeks ago) Our fd has a copy of it on video for some strange reason. BE SAFE

                Wow, even with knowing the film was a backdraft, all the signs were clearly there. Hope the brothers involved were all ok.

                      Nope; not Ohio signs. Those signs are standard Federal Highway signs. US Route 2 and US Route 5. Route 5 runs North/South while Route 2 runs East/West. The only place these two highways cross is in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. From the directions on the street signs, my guess is that we are seeing a fire that occured on Railroad Street between Eastern Avenue and Portland Street.

                      I love a good mystery.

                        That was awesome but was that a BACK DRAFT or a SMOKE EXPLOSION. It looked as if it had already vented and they were hitting it and then it went KABOOM. I always thought a Backdraft was caused by a lack of Oxygen and then when it was Inrtroduced it went BOOM? From here it looked as if was rolling pretty good. Doesnt matter.. Glad to see the guys walk away..

                            Great video you do not see this on a normal bases, and even cooler it was caught on video. the best is for it to be put on the web is awesome. Thats a keeper for the teaching files.
