It's a rare look inside firefighting.
A Fresno fire fighter put a camera on his helmet. And he recorded some incredible images during an apartment fire that forced 31 people from their homes.
It's a view of firefighting we don't normally get to see.
What firefighters face - when there's a call for help.
Fresno firefighter Adam Enns had a camera on his fire helmet when responded to an apartment fire Monday in Southeast Fresno.
He was waved down by one of the residents.
Enns and his fellow firefighters move closer to the danger.
“We drug a hose line through the breezeway and then by the time we got to the other side the breezeway was fully involved. The other side of the complex had fire blowing out the windows and the doors,” Enns said.
Enns has never used his helmet camera in fire this powerful before.
But he and others see it as a valuable training tool - especially in a profession that's life and death.
“The fire department and this profession can be dangerous at times. And it's good to be aware of the safety aspect of being a firefighter and what not to do and what to do,” Enns said.
He and his coworkers view the tape like a football player reviewing game film.
And he shared it with the public to help people like you and I better understand the firefighter’s job.
Watch for instance what it's like when they actually go into the burning apartment building.
“There's a lot of movies out there and they don't depict what a fire is really like when you go inside. And it's pretty much when I’m outside and I go inside it's like driving down the road in fog you can't see anything,” Enns said.
