Collyer Mansion Rescue: Pasadena, MDRescue of Handicapped Occupant and Progressing Fire on Videos

November rescue of a handicapped woman from rapidly progressing fire conditions.

On 27 November, fire companies in Pasadena, Maryland and surrounding areas repsonded to a reported house fire with an occupant inside, unable to get out. Once crews arrived, a search was started and the occupant quickly removed from a first floor bedroom. According to various department websites fire conditions were such that some members had to exit via windows. Fire on the first floor as well as the basement proved difficult to extinguish due to a "massive amount of content in the house" according to Capt. James Rostek from the Anne Arundel County Fire Department. The occupant was transported to a local hospital for smoke inhalation. Two firefighters were treated for smoke inhalation, a third for a medical emergency.

Dave i agree with your whole post. However the one thing I'm not experiencing or seeing is the over safetyifcation.
