    I'm the cool amateur footage guy ;) I was laying in bed this morning... it was like 7 o'clock. Fire station alarm goes off... a cop car goes by, then a fire truck. Nothing out of the ordinary as I'm used to it living 2 blocks from a fire station. I roll back over and go back to sleep. Then another truck goes by, then another, then another, then another etc... after about 10 trucks/sirens finally I was like... alright wtf is going on here? I look out the window and see flashing lights right at the corner. I come downstairs and turn the scanner on to see whats up. There was a house fire one block down from here. I grab the camera and my coat and head out to take a look. My neighbor is already checking it out. Mind you it's like 4F degrees outside -13F windchill... so it was a little icy... I got a little footage, but nothing interesting as the fire was down a block and I wasn't walking in a house coat and slippers in this cold.

    Here is the video.

    Aren't the videos supposed to be on the actual fire itself instead of the trucks? You'll never get that sold to the local news media lol

    I'm not even gonna ask why you have a scanner in your house. Good quality on the footage though.

    Wow, exiting stuff.
    Not bad camera footage though :) considering it was starting to get icy and you had just woken up.
    Im guessing they got the fire put out?

    Well the trucks left, so I'm assuming they did. Like I said blueyes, wasn't gonna walk in this bitter cold. Screw that.
    Well you did... I used to be part of the Fire/EMS station when I lived in Maryland. I just like having one around now.

    Thats pretty cool, I wish you took better footage of the fire, but it's understandable. Were you talking during this video? If so which one were you, at the end someone says " you'll be surprise how quickly it can get out control" was that you?

    Nice work on the Fire report. Seeing that video makes me cold.
    What a way to start your day.

    Ya I was the one at the end. They can get out of control very quick. It was cold and I wanted to go back inside, that's why it was so short.

    But the trucks are so cool! :hah:

    I didnt have sound on this computer so I missed out on whether or not the video did.

    Any idea on whether that was just a run of the mill kitchen fire?

    No clue. I drove by later to look for it and didn't see any charred houses. I'd assume it was a big fire due to the fact that they had trucks from townships two towns away...

    Cait Oh, poppycock.

    Am I going to hear about this on the news?

    My grandmother has one because she enjoys listening to what's going on.
