The Cornerstone Fire – South Metro, CO Close Call Explained By the Firefighters Who Survived It

Watch, listen, share, learn. You owe it to yourselves and your peers to learn from this close call.

South Metro Fire:

This video describes a close call at a basement fire in fall of 2012 in South Metro’s district. The incident nearly trapped 4 members of our department as they narrowly escaped a collapse of the first floor into the basement. This video hopes to pass on lessons learned so that other firefighters are not faced with a similar situation.
