Los Angeles Firefighters Escaping Explosion
Occurred on May 16, 2020 / Los Angeles, California, USA
Info from Licensor: "The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a building fire in downtown. As first responders began arriving on the scene, a 'Mayday' plea for was blasted over the radio requesting immediate assistance. I heard and saw a large number of fire apparatus descending onto the location. I headed that way to gain a greater understanding of why so many units were needed. The air smelled of burning embers. As I arrived in the area, multiple police units began blocking streets as Fire and EMS personnel continued arriving on the scene. As I filmed LAFD Battalion # 1, an explosion followed by an enormous fireball ensued as firefighters escaped for their lives."
