This is a brief helmet-cam video from Assistant Chief Robin Andino of CamdenWyomingFire taken at a collapse at a Hartly, Delaware house fire yesterday afternoon. According to news reports, the collapse left two firefighters briefly trapped.


Hartly firefighters found heavy fire in the 2-story home and were helped by several neighboring fire companies.  Two firefighters were injured when they were trapped inside the home when part of the house collapsed – a third firefighter was also injured. It took nearly 2 hours to bring the blaze under control.
