Video from bobbybushae¬†and FireVideo.net of a house fire a while ago in East St. Louis, Illinois. The order to get out happens at 6:28. The last person out is the one with the helmet-cam who almost doesn’t make it.

Here’s the description with the video:

Firefighters responded to an occupied structure fire (occupant was out on arrival) to find a working fire in a one story frame house. While making an interior attack, the conditions deteriorated and the roof began to collapse. Firefighters were ordered to evacuate and upon exiting, the roof truss hit the last firefighters SCBA as he exited. The fire was eventually put under control and no firefighters suffered any injuries. Video was filmed with the Fire Cam 1080 Fire Helmet Camera from www.firevideo.net .
