See what it’s really like to fight a fire (video)

The raging basement fire was hot. Really hot. Almost 1,200 degrees hot.

The bed, set ablaze by an unknown source, was glowing with a fierce orange flame, and the temperature continued to rise as smoke filled the room.

The four-member team fighting the blaze had no special training. In fact, none of them had even donned full firefighter’s gear before.

Luckily, the fire was just a training exercise run by North Metro Fire Rescue District, the International Association of Fire Fighters and Colorado Professional Fire Fighters.
