Fire rescue caught on camera

 Wednesday, July 25, 2012


An incredible rescue was caught on camera over the weekend in Idaho Falls. Firefighters pulled a man from a narrow basement window-well as his home burned. A neighbor by 374 K Street shot some cell phone footage of firefighters strategizing; how to get a grown man out of a narrow window well while his home burned from the rear laundry room. The footage, now on YouTube.com, shows the minutes-long effort, as chainsaws came out and firefighers had to cut into the house to free the man.
