Helmet cam: Close-up of house fire bailout

A mayday was called after a firefighter said he had fallen through a floor and was burning

By FireRescue1 Staff

GREAT MILLS, Md. — Helmet cam footage captures a bailout at a Md. house fire on Sunday.

Firefighters from several different stations were dispatched to battle the single-story house fire, according to Hollywood VFD.

When more firefighters arrived, they saw an interior firefighter at a window asking for help, saying he was burning and had fallen through the floor. Crews assisted the firefighter and pulled him away from the structure.

A mayday was also delivered during the blaze as contact was broken with some of the firefighters, but was called off once contact was restored.

One firefighter was airlifted to the hospital but was later released and another refused treatment and has recovered.
