Video! Watch Richmond firefighters battle two-alarm fire through helmet cam

Richmond Fire Department offers tips for approaching fire season

A Richmond firefighter uploaded video footage from his helmet cam on Monday showing a battle against an early morning house fire.

The house fire occurred March 28 on Ocean Avenue in Point Richmond. The video footage offers an idea of what it’s like to take on a burning building.

Here’s the description Richmond Fire Capt. Marc Lucero, who wore the helmet cam, provided in his YouTube post.

From the Helmet Cam of Richmond California Captain from E67 Marc Lucero with Richmond firefighters Ginger Bridges (on the nozzle) and Josh Tate (Rookie Yellow helmet) attack a well involved early morning fire in a 2 story house. At about 6:00 minutes in the the video the crew runs into a tough situation when the second floor has been burned through and getting to the fire is made difficult It’s a good fight! Great interior footage and a good example of what the fire cam is capable of capturing.
