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.
