The video above is from the Marshall Wildfire. With more cameras placed on first responders, we are getting a better understanding of what happens during urban wildfires. It takes a lot of courage to be a firefighter.

From a scientific standpoint, the winds in these wildfires amaze me. The fires spread quickly. The wind pressure by itself can cause structural damage to a building without considering fire or smoke damage.

This post is short, so you can watch and learn from this amazing footage.

Thought For The Day

My heroes are those who risk their lives every day to protect our world and make it a better place – police, firefighters and members of our armed forces.
