These Waterbury Ct. firefighters seek refuge on a second floor porch following a backdraft.
It was an intense five-minute rescue operation but all the firemen was rescued. Some were treated for smoke inhalation. After battling this fast moving fire a flash-over occured trapping the firemen. Firemen below scurried to get ladders up to the trapped firemen on Rescue Engine 9. Everyone in the building got out safely and the fire is ruled as arson. Michael Asaro photo
