Heavy duty work on a reportedly abandoned house fire
The best vacant building is the one that is torn down. A lot full of rubble on the ground loses its ability to trap firefighters in a collapse. That said we found this video from Springhill Nova Scotia. The description by Pirate Jeep is, “An abandoned house in Springhill Nova Scotia catches fire April 29th 2013. The Springhill Volunteer Firefighters make easy work of the fire then demolish the house.” The earlier video of the fire attack, posted by davegalloway50, is described as “Quick response to a fire in an abandoned house in Springhill NS. House had to be demolished. Kudos to the Springhill fire dept. for a quick response time to assure no surrounding buildings was lost.”
Not sure how they decided to demolish the home during the fire, but it is interesting to say the least.
