Posted by Modesto Firefighters Local 1289 on YouTube - On 05/16/2014 at 18:16 Modesto Regional Fire Authority (CA) responded to a 3-alarm fire at 516 Comstock Court.

Firefighters were challenged by 15-20 mph winds and lack of initial man power.
On Monday, June 11, 2012, at 7:03 PM, units of the Santa Clara County Fire Department responded to a report of fire in a two story townhouse located at 231 Shelley Avenue in Campbell, California. The first firefighters to arrive on scene were confronted by heavy fire showing from the second floor of the structure.
There are differences between past helmets and modern ones, changes in turnout gear and other equipment used to fight fires, plus researching the history of firefighting.
