A Propane Tank Explosion Knocks Firefighters on Their Backs (Video)

posted by Bodhi - 

Body camera video from firefighters in Maine show them arriving to battle a blaze when a propane tank suddenly explodes. It sends a blast of air and flames that knocks them on their backs. One suffered burns to his face and head, but he's okay.

This is a clip from my body camera at the fire that occurred here in Limestone on 06-08-2017. This video is of when the explosion took place. Those who choose to be a firefighter whether full time or as a volunteer know the hazards of the job. I commend those that want to, "put the wet stuff on the red stuff" and lay their lives on the line each and every time they head out. This incident is a prime example of how things can change in an instant. Limestone Police Chief Stacey J. Mahan You know the old saying, "Why did God make Firefighters?"....."so cops could have heroes."
