On this page is video taken as the first firefighters arrived on the scene of the fire in Abbotsford, Wisconsin (Clark County) shortly after noon on Sunday, March 4. The fire in the Abby Theater took the life of Lt. Jamison Kampmeyer of the Colby Fire Department. Lt. Kampmeyer was also a deputy sheriff in Marathon County.
Earlier today WQOW-TV reported that investigators have determined the fire started because of an electrical malfunction in the lobby of the theater.
The video was provided for training purposes to st1300a4’s YouTube Channel by Julie Miklaszewicz who runs RVing Outpost, LLC – On-Line Store!. Julie had previously posted the video and removed it until after the funeral, honoring a request from local firefighters.
Immediately below is the video Julie Miklaszewicz posted on March 5. It is the same as clip number 5 but with audio and better video quality. Julie Miklaszewicz previously posted a large number of still pictures on her Facebook page here.
