There has been a discussion going on since Wednesday in our comments section and on Facebook about video of a wall collapse at a fire Tuesday at the Ozark Treasures Thrift Store, 1026 St. Louis St. in West Plains, Missouri. Much of the discussion centered around two people who appeared to be near or in the collapse zone without PPE. One of them had been using a handline on the fire through the roof in the rear of the store. Other than a link to some good early still pictures that I don’t think everyone saw, the view was quite limited about what else was happening on the fireground.
The last couple years we have run many dash-cam and helmet-cam videos from West Plains and figured some would be coming from this fire. These two clips were posted yesterday and show the arrival of the first engine with smoke showing from the attic, initial fire department actions and the view from the front of the building.
