Screen grab from the video of the RV fire

This is an impressive video of firefighters working on an RV fire in San Diego. The firefighters had been working the fire for quite some time, making little progress, when flames erupted (at 1:22) and engulfed one firefighter.

The video was shot by a Fire Explorer who was on a ride-along. He was in full PPE and his Sony Handycam HD was hand-held — no tripod.
