Fairfax County VA Firefighter Mayday

2/8/10 - Firefighters in Fairfax County VA responded for numerous calls reporting an apartment fire this evening on Hunt Club Circle. Engine 440 was on location with thick smoke showing from a three story garden apartment style apartment. While firefighters were operating on the third floor, a partial roof collapse knocked a firefighter off the balcony. The firefighter fell three stories to the ground where he transmitted a mayday stating he had fallen and his partner could possibly be trapped on the third floor. Firefighters entered the building and found and removed the firefighter. The fire went to two alarms as the fire burned through the roof. Listen to the audio here.
