San Bernardino County Fire Department faced special challenges on a house fire. According to dispatch audio, the fire scene was compromised by a woman wielding a gun at the scene. All responding companies were told to stage for their safety as law enforcement dealt with the threat. After several minutes the scene was secured by the Sheriff’s department and fire crews were allowed in. The helmet cam footage shows the delay allowed the fire to gain control of much of the house. No injuries were reported and it is not made clear who the woman was or why she threatened emergency personnel with a gun.
