FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. — Fairfax County Firefighter Ben Sisson wears a helmet camera so that he can review footage of his calls and improve his skills.

"This time it was a dog, maybe next time it's gonna be a person," Sisson said. "You just don't know." His helmet camera footage shows the dangerous scene. Yellow flames leap from an upstairs room and thick smoke chokes the stairway.
