The video above was posted this week from a fire in February handled by LAFD in Van Nuys, California (first seen on Firefighter Spot). The video below is from the same fire posted back in February.
A fire broke out in a one-story commercial building in the 6600 block of N. Van Nuys Boulevard, around 5 p.m.
The flames were still licking that building at 6 p.m., when fire officials reported that the roof was in danger of collapsing.
Two firefighters were injured and taken to a local hospital, both were in fair condition.
“Firefighters did have a heave fire load when they arrived on scene. Immediately they engaged in an aggressive fire attack, where firefighters forced entry into the building, they used hand lines inside and then firefighters when to the roof in order to do ventilation,” said Captain Jaime Moore of the L.A. City Fire Department.The fire continued to intensify, as four ladders were brought in to douse from above.
“They placed anywhere between 1,500 to 2,000 gallons of water per minute each on the fire,” Moore said. “What we did there was actually control the fire from spreading to the adjacent structures.”
