BAINBRIDGE, Ga. — A video posted online shows law enforcement officers grabbing a hose line and initiating an attack on a truck fire.

Footage, which you can view by clicking here, shows a Georgia State Patrol officer, a Decatur County sheriff's deputy and another officer manning two lines without fire PPE at a semi truck fire on Tuesday.

All public safety officers in the City of Bainbridge are certified in both law enforcement and firefighting, according to the city website.

However, fire blogger Dave Statter points out that the law enforcement officials on the lines may not have belonged to the city.
