Somehow this video by hermy8 of a fire in De Pere, Wisconsin on August 31, 2012 slipped under the radar when it was posted. There is a lot of action going on even before the arrival of the fire department. It includes a small squad of police officers arriving. Two make their way to the second floor with a sledge hammer via an outside stairway on Side B apparently to check for victims. Their actions are out of view of the camera but by the sudden rush of smoke and their retreat down the stairs it appears they were successful in popping a door.  News reports indicate this structure in the 600 block of West James is a garage with a workshop on the second floor.
