Firefighters Narrowly Escape Roof Collapse

Firefighters narrowly escaped falling through a collapsing roof while fighting a fire, and it was all caught on tape. INSIDE EDITION has the story.

Some firefighters got the scare of their lives.

They were cutting holes in the roof of a burning building to ventilate the fire when disaster struck. The roof collapses underneath them. It actually started to melt away.

Two of the firefighters managed to scramble away but their comrade was left hanging on for dear life. If he lost his grip, he would have fallen through the roof into the raging inferno below.

The team worked together and pulled him to safety. As they climbed off the roof, they took a moment to catch their breath and reflect on just how lucky they were—cheating death thanks to some good luck and great teamwork.
