Richmond Fire Capt. Marc Lucero has posted a video on YouTube of a local blaze on Sunday that was filmed via a helmet cam.

The filming occurred at the scene of a fire in the garage of a home in the 200 block of S. 44th Street, near Wall Avenue, according to fire dispatch.

The video shows flames shooting out of one of the property’s windows before a helmet-cam-wearing firefighter enters the structure. Viewers can then watch fire crews attack flames in the darkened, smoke-filled home with a fire hose.

According to a description from the YouTube video, Engine 67 brought a rookie firefighter, Jessica Wraa, to one of her first interior attacks. She reportedly helped battle three fires in three days.

No injuries have been reported in connection with the fire, but we’ve got a call into the Richmond Fire Department seeking confirmation.

Capt. Lucero has been posting helmet-cam videos on YouTube in order to assist in the training of colleagues who cannot attend expensive training conferences and classes.
