Two people were hurt this (Friday) morning on Route 611 in Mount Pocono, Pennsylvania after an RV caught fire and then damaged three other vehicles. In the video below, you will see the fire initially burning under power lines, causing them to break and shutting power in the area. At about 2:40 the fire ground began to move, with the RV and a burning SUV rolling down the street toward the videographer.
Prior to the video a Navy vet, assisted by others, pulled a woman from the RV who had gone in the vehicle to rescue her cat.
A U.S. Navy veteran who served in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, (Chris) Chmielnicki entered the RV, crawled through the smoke to the back and spotted the unconscious woman’s leg. He got hold of her and dragged her to the door, where she regained consciousness and said she had to find her cat.
Chmielnicki said he was unable to get the heavy-set woman down the steps by himself, with a titanium leg having replaced the one he lost in a motorcycle crash. He said others helped him get her down the steps, away from the vehicle and over to the nearby Casino Theater, where they sat her down and gave her water.
