WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Chilling surveillance footage captured the moment where two firefighters were knocked back as they prepared to enter a burning home earlier this week.
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue firefighters arrived at the home Monday morning. The fire began in the garage, and crews were told the family’s cats may still be inside, reported NCB4i.
