A June morning structure fire

This morning Gabriola firefighters were up early again – this time to fight a structure fire in a small home.

Here’s a photo we managed to get of our attack team inside the building:

We’ll show you more photos from this fire in the next while.

Something to think about: the firefighters in this photo are wearing full protective gear, including SCBA (self contained breathing apparatus), because the smoke in the building is full of particulate matter and toxic chemicals. If your house ever catches fire, don’t stick around breathing that stuff! Just get out quickly.
