We received a number of emails alerting us to this recent video from Boston. Special thanks go out to Firefighter Marc Maria from Woonsocket (RI) Fire for being the first to let us know. The video is of a three alarm job in the Mattapan section of Boston. This outstanding footage was captured by Fox25’s SkyFox Helicopter. The first video doesn’t have much audio, so don’t bother trying to adjust your speakers.
We don’t have the full story, so if anyone has any details, please fill us all in. The one thing you can see is that they definitely had some aerials up! For some reason, it looks like they weren’t able to get any to side C of the structure, which could have prevented the need for this type of egress. We are sure these guys had some tense moments on the roof, but fortunately they still had a favorable outcome. They did, but look at minute 3:04 in the first video, we are pretty sure that saw did not fair too well.78 comments
