The video above might be the last from Scott Ziegler of Highland Park, MI. Scott has been patiently waiting for his chance to work for the Detroit Fire Department. His 10 year wait to get hired ends in a couple of days. Scott was hired by Detroit and is looking forward to it. I wish Scott the best with Detroit…one of the best group of firefighters I have ever met. Good luck Brother.
Video by: HPZ1442 (Scott Ziegler). Video info: Called to reports of a dwelling fire on Avalon st mid afternoon. We arrived to find heavy fire on the 1st and 2nd floor. Upon making entry and knocking down the 1st floor we were alerted that there was possible people trapped. We made our way to the 2nd floor while FFs searched the 1st. We extinguished what fire we could while breaking off to do a search. During the search my right leg and left foot went through the floor which you can hear, gave me a bit of a scare lol. I edited a lot of this fire out since it was mostly dark and you can really only hear the sound of the water. Also added some music to cover up some audio. Sorry. We burned through about 2 and a 1/2 bottles on this fire, when Detroit eng 35 sent a crew up to assist us. Those boys went to work and made things much easier for us.
Fire was recorded with a Firecam 1080 from firevideo.net
