Helmet cam footage of heavy fire conditions from what appears to be a 1.5 or 2 story home well involved.  The fire occurred in Sunbury, PA and has some good early action.  The description is posted below.  The video was posted by Anthony Bendele

“Short clip of our arrival at a working dwelling fire in the city. We arrived on scene with 4 on the Tower as well as having Engine 561 right behind us. We immediately pulled a line off the truck to save an exposure on the delta side of the structure while Engine 561 stretched multiple lines to the bravo and charlie sides. (For those armchair QB’s who are no doubt gonna talk about the water flow, the line was stretched instantly to save the exposure with the tank water and after 5” was connected then we drowned it). No units went to the alpha side initially due to live wires being down and arching. In all the box went to 3 alarms (on scene and transfers). Multiple homes were damaged due to high heat from the fire. Houses on the bravo and delta sides had the siding melt completely off. Homes on the opposite side of the street (alpha side) also suffered heat damage which included melted siding and broken windows.

3rd Alarm units on scene or transferred were as follows:

Truck 542, Truck 734, Truck 32

Engine 561, Engine 721, Engine 531, Engine 572, Snyder County Engine 9-2, Engine 741, Engine 521, Engine 711, Engine 111
