Corey Welch on the scene of a fire early this morning in Providence, Rhode Island. As I have mentioned before, for those looking for tips on how to shoot video of a fire (or anything else), watch Corey's work. You can find more of Corey's work at his website, here. Here are Corey's details on the fire:
Providence Firefighters were called out on a "Still/Box" of a reported structure fire in an occupied home around 4:30am on Friday, April 22nd. They arrived on O'Connnor St to find heavy fire showing from floor three of the three story wood frame structure. Command requested an additional ladder and engine to the scene before calling a second alarm as fire quickly spread through the home. Firefighters were only in the building for a short amount of time before everyone was called out of the structure for defensive operations. At that time, fire was visible from the second floor, third floor, and through the roof. Four ladder trucks were in operation as well as several hand lines. It took about an hour before the flames were knocked down. At least one tenant of the home was being treated on scene with unknown injuries. There was no word of any other injuries as of 5:30am.
