Posted by Modesto Firefighters Local 1289 on YouTube - On 05/16/2014 at 18:16 Modesto Regional Fire Authority responded to a 3 alarm fire at 516 Comstock Court. The following raw footage is from a helmet camera worn by a MRFA Firefighter who responded to the Emerald Ave. fire with over 22 other units from Modesto and neighboring agencies. Firefighters were challenged by 15-20 mph winds and lack of initial man power. The fire started in dry vegetation and quickly spread to adjacent homes. The fire damaged 8 homes and burned nearly 20 acres of field. Due to low staffing levels, Modesto was left unprotected for hours. During that period of time MRFA resources were forced to stop responding to medical emergencies. In addition an entire off duty shift was called in to respond for subsequent emergencies that still had to be answered.
