VIDEO: From the porch of a vacant row house in Northeast D.C., a film director yelled, “We are rolling … and action!” On his cue, several D.C. firefighters jumped out of their fire truck, bounded up the steps, donned protective gear and lunged into thick fumes. It’s all a simulation of sorts. For the next three days, those directors’ commands will take the place of a real 911 call, as members of D.C. Fire and EMS have been selected to star in a national training video designed to teach firefighters across the country about the dangers of fighting a row house blaze. Firefighters said it’s one of the most dangerous structure fires to battle. “We’ve had injuries and line-of-duty deaths that have been attributed to these types of buildings,” said Deputy Fire Chief Anthony Kelleher.
