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.

Thank you John. I believe that part of the problem(s) is that some don't know how to pare down the material to what works for them. Another is that some believe that if XYZ worked for them is must and have to work for you, no exceptions. Finally, yes, I did get permission. Bill

My first blitz attack (reset) was on a two storey house with flames out the 2nd storey window, back in 1996. We were first-in, as a 3 man crew on a ladder…
