Helmet-cam video from Sacramento, CA. Initial report of baby trapped.

Do you want to sell a rig? Click HERE to find out how with

Helmet-cam video from SACfire76 of a house fire at 24th Avenue and 34th Street in Sacramento, California. No date was given but I believe it was this fire on December 9.

Here's the description with the video:

Two story house fire. Things may appear to be squirrely in the first few minutes of the video. Its only because there is a lady screaming that her baby is inside and a man is pointing into the front room saying that he can see the baby "right there". Of course there is no baby.

    Great video, hope baby wasn't in there. Engine placement was superb-leaving enough room for aerial truck, good line placement, smooth bore nozzle(only way to go lol) aggressive and smart ff's. knowing when to make the push. Good thing it flashed before the brothers made the move. Only wish we could see the outcome of the fire, if the saved the house or not. Only point of constructive criticism, after the chauffeur decides that is where the tower ladder or aerial is going to be parked…put the outriggers down-even if you aren't going to use the aerial device. If they had to use it, for whatever reason, they would've had to move a lot of hose to get the outriggers down. Small piece of advice otherwise fantastic job brothers.

    What was all of that crap, maze of stuff leading up to the structure?

      I was of the same thought, RL.  The homeowners have a steel fence around the property, and then block what appears to be the driveway with a large number of pre-fabricated trusses which are not in use, but make a dangerous maze to go through.  How did the homeowners even get to their own front door?  Also seems to be a lot of items (junk) all around the front door, in the yard, and in the front rooms of the house.  This video gives us a better understanding of why most of what firefighters do is heroic – risking their lives for others, scrambling through "crap" while hauling their own gear and charged hoses, then having to look for a child that isn't there.  What firefighters do every day is, in most cases, above and beyond the call, and they deserve all the praise we can give.

    These brothers did an outstanding job. Always amazed how on this site the number of comments is inversely proportionate to how well the job went. If these guys had screwed the pooch there would have been 40 comments by KICs ripping them a new ass. But, since they did a great job hardly anyone bothers to leave a comment. So, once again I will say it. Nice work Sacramento FD.
